Forecast

Mere Anarchy (9/4), Rose Of Cimarron (8/1), Knight Commander (8/1), Lerichi Belle (9/1), The Mighty Ash (9/1), Sandford Castle (10/1), Radical Archie (12/1), Itsamanslife (14/1), Fortia (14/1), Rebel Commander (16/1), A Bold Move (16/1), Legend Lady (20/1), Great Fairy (25/1), What A Scorcher (33/1), Kings Watch (33/1), Foxy Lass (50/1), Ayla's Emperor (66/1), Anton Chigurh (66/1)

Verdict
Knight Commander and Mere Anarchy will be supported having indicated a return to form last time and both are likely to fare better at this trip. Fortia and ROSE OF CIMARRON drop into handicap company for the first time. The latter makes more appeal with Richard Johnson taking the reins and her bumper form indicating she may be better than her initial hurdles runs indicate. Lerichi Belle has the ability to win this but she has become less reliable lately, whilst Sandford Castle would be hard to ignore if there are positive signs in the market.
  1. Rose Of Cimarron
  2. Mere Anarchy
  3. Lerichi Belle
