Forecast

Goldencard (11/8), Thelongwayaround (6/4), Starozov (6/1), Stoney Rover (15/2), Definite Wisdom (25/1), Fig's Pride (33/1), Barney's Caulker (66/1), Captain Kurt (80/1), Flying Dismount (80/1), Broomey Road (80/1)

Verdict
A very modest opener can go to GOLDENCARD, who has the strongest bumper form and is bred to jump. Little else makes a huge amount of appeal on paper, but Definite Wisdom, Thelongwayaround and Starozov may all be capable of making an impact in a weak race.
  1. Goldencard
  2. Thelongwayaround
  3. Definite Wisdom
