Forecast

Samburu Shujaa (5/4), Kapcorse (5/1), Boyhood (11/2), Wicked Willy (8/1), El Bandit (17/2), Tommy Rapper (10/1), Diger Daudaie (11/1), Tobefair (20/1), Looksnowtlikebrian (20/1), Sandymount (20/1), Lord Of The Island (25/1), Arctic Gold (33/1), Jetstream Jack (66/1)

Verdict
C&D maiden winner Samburu Shujaa hosed up for an easy win last month but was given a very handy lead out in front, something that is unlikely to be afforded now. It would be preferable therefore to see him doing it a second time. Kapcorse has won over fences and hurdles recently and should have few problems seeing out this longer trip, he could well have Paul Nicholls enjoying another Saturday winner but a chance is taken on SANDYMOUNT. Tom George's string are firing right now (4-10) and he should be much-improved for his return at Wincanton. He's gone close from higher marks in the past and remains low-mileage ensuring he piques interest from the foot of the weights.
  1. Sandymount
