Forecasts

Cracking Destiny (7/4), Air Navigator (6/1), Primal Focus (6/1), Skellig Rocks (6/1), Joueur Bresilien (6/1), First Du Charmil (8/1), Balibour (8/1), All Kings (16/1), Canyouringmeback (20/1)

Verdict

All of these carry a doubt going into this, most notably Cracking Destiny who could either win this on the bridle or give up in a battle. It is also guesswork to predict the sort of performances both Canyouringmeback and First Du Charmil might produce, whilst long term maidens Skellig Rocks and All Kings will find few easier openings. Air Navigator beat a subsequent winner on his chase debut before failing in stronger company. That earns him a spot on the shortlist, but preference is for BALIBOUR who has looked a better horse going right-handed and who has dropped in the weights after his last two starts on tracks that did not suit.
  1. Balibour
  2. Air Navigator
  3. Cracking Destiny
