Forecast

Nevada (3/1), Motahassen (4/1), Champagne Rules (5/1), Whatwouldyouknow (13/2), Broughtons Story (8/1), Mr Carbonator (10/1), Exclusive Waters (12/1), Dream Free (14/1), Cold Fusion (25/1), Compulsive (25/1), Amy Blair (25/1), Dawn Of Reckoning (50/1), Outlaw Torn (66/1), Lisnamoyle Lady (66/1), Bevsboy (66/1), L'Es Fremantle (250/1)

Verdict
CHAMPAGNE RULES is a C&D winner who signalled a return to form when second at Wolverhampton recently, and gets the nod over the unexposed Nevada in a trappy finale. The latter will be popular with Simon Walker booked, as will Whatwouldyouknow while Cold Fusion could go well at a price.
  1. Champagne Rules
  2. Nevada
  3. Cold Fusion
