Forecast

Dickie Diver (11/4), Lisnagar Oscar (4/1), Truckin Away (6/1), Black Centaur (13/2), Down The Highway (7/1), Ganache (10/1), Storm Arising (12/1), Breaking Waves (14/1), Wee Saxon (16/1), Ali The Hunter (20/1), Saturdaynightfever (33/1), Jog On (33/1), Tedspeed (33/1), Hurricane Arcadio (66/1), Our Idic Boy (66/1), Gibb Hill (100/1)

Verdict
A fascinating race in prospect. Both Down The Highway and Truckin Away look to be above average in ability, but at the same time they arrive carrying penalties and with a bit to prove after their latest efforts in the same Sandown race. Therefore, it could pay to take them on with LISNAGAR OSCAR, who is improving, receives weight from both of them, and should appreciate this stiffish 2m3½f. Black Centaur is very interesting, as are the Nicky Henderson pair Dickie Diver and Ganache, while Breaking Waves is not written off.
  1. Lisnagar Oscar
  2. Truckin Away
  3. Dickie Diver
