Forecast

First Excel (4/1), Red Pike (5/1), Wiff Waff (6/1), Another Angel (7/1), Gnaad (7/1), Gamesome (8/1), Warrior's Valley (10/1), Amazing Grazing (12/1), Landing Night (12/1), Lord Of The Glen (14/1), Gift In Time (20/1)

Verdict
FIRST EXCEL has been knocking at the door with four straight seconds including over C&D latest where he had several rivals behind and some of those would otherwise be leading contenders so his form is the most compelling. Wiff Waff is 2lb better off with the selection having been fifth to him latest and he should close the gap granted a better start. Red Pike ran on well for second at Chelmsford latest and is another worth considering.
