Forecast

Helf (3/1), Dream Free (4/1), Mr Mulliner (9/2), Cottonvale (6/1), Mr Magill (6/1), Definite Winner (11/1), Mount Vesuvius (16/1), Karl Marx (20/1), Troy Dee Knee (25/1), No No Legend (25/1), Macca's Stowaway (66/1)

Verdict
Hard to find a convincing or solid profile in this with most of these having their quirks. MOUNT VESUVIUS has a least proved himself of late with a win and didn’t get the most positive of rides last time at Exeter in a race where he travelled well for some way. Helf is given a mention on the strength of his Market Rasen win but has an absence to overcome with Dream Free capable of winning something like this on his best form. Mr Mulliner showed that hurdles were more his sphere at Fontwell with his best display for a while and positive ride can be expected from him while Mr Magill is one to note in the market with the change of yard a possible positive.
  1. Mount Vesuvius
  2. Mr Mulliner
  3. Dream Free
