Forecast

Khage (10/11), Le Ligerien (5/2), Legal History (5/1), Arcade Attraction (9/1), Kyllachy Gala (12/1), Ostuni (20/1), Realms Of Fire (33/1), Raving Bonkers (50/1), Cooling (100/1), Broke Away (125/1), Captain Marmalade (200/1), Little Robin (200/1), Actonetaketwo (200/1)

Verdict
LE LIGERIEN for the all-conquering Hobbs/Johnson combination has made two promising starts so far over hurdles including a third here on debut and has leading claims now to gain a first career win. The biggest dangers look to be recent Southwell second Khage who likes to bowl along in front which will suit this tight track and Legal History who showed ability at Newbury and with the 12lb receipt of weight he must be respected.
