Forecast

Chef Des Obeaux (9/4), Now Mcginty (3/1), Steely Addition (7/2), Captain Cattistock (6/1), De Rasher Counter (12/1), Forza Milan (14/1), Tobefair (16/1), Johanos (25/1), Zero Grand (25/1), Herefordshire (100/1)

Verdict
There was plenty to like about how De Rasher Counter saw out his success at Newbury last time, and he could have a fair bit more to come. However, the similarly-penalised STEELY ADDITION already looked smart in scoring over C&D last time and is taken to repeat the feat. Chef Des Obeaux is nicely treated at these weights with the selection, but he was a shade disappointing on his chase debut, so needs to better that. Captain Cattistock and Now Mcginty are the others who make most appeal.
  1. Steely Addition
  2. De Rasher Counter
  3. Chef Des Obeaux
