Forecasts

La Bague Au Roi (10/11), Delta Work (6/4), Hardline (7/2), Winter Escape (9/2), Mortal (7/1), Jetz (14/1), Kaiser Black (33/1), Riders Onthe Storm (66/1)

Verdict

DELTA WORK can maintain his unbeaten record over fences here and land a third Grade 1 success after his impressive win here over the festive period. Winter Escape looks firmly on the up at present and rates as the main danger. Both La Bague Au Roi and Hardline may have preferred more ease in the ground than what's likely but they still have solid each-way claims after their respective Grade 1 wins last time out.
