Forecast

Tikkapick (11/8), Black Anthem (6/1), Vexillum (6/1), Bredon Hill Lad (13/2), Sizing Brisbane (15/2), Turban (16/1), Holeinthewall Bar (16/1), Big Bang De Loire (16/1), Gilly Grace (20/1), Gentleman Moore (33/1)

Verdict
Tikkapick has the only plausible recent from having scored last time but his priors make him less than trustworthy. Stable companion SIZING BRISBANE is an unconvincing selection given it's his Irish form in 2016 that suggests he is better than this and good ground is crucial. Three runs from a break may have him ready for a contest as bad as this. Vexillium is interesting at this level, whilst Turban has proven himself capable off this mark in this grade. Black Anthem was sent off at 3/1 for a harder race than this last time when making his chasing debut and he will get few easier opportunities to gain that elusive first win.
