Forecast

Cogry (7/1), Calett Mad (7/1), For Good Measure (7/1), Shantou Village (7/1), Braqueur D'or (8/1), Above Board (17/2), West Approach (9/1), Minella Rocco (12/1), Dell' Arca (14/1), Doing Fine (14/1), Relentless Dreamer (16/1), Captain Chaos (18/1), Laurium (20/1), Domesday Book (25/1), Swingbridge (33/1), Perfect Candidate (33/1), Rightdownthemiddle (50/1)

Verdict
A chance is taken on FOR GOOD MEASURE who is almost certain to improve dramatically now upped to this sort of trip. He must jump soundly in such a competitive contest but seems to have done so in his two starts so far albeit in smaller fields. Dangers aplenty include last year's winner Cogry with Nigel Twiston-Davies always respected at this meeting. Dell' Arca, West Approach and Doing Fine are also on the shortlist in that order of preference.
  1. For Good Measure
  2. Cogry
  3. Dell' Arca
