Forecast

Almost Midnight (5/6), Forest Of Dean (11/8), Autumn Pride (7/2), Battle Of Pembroke (20/1), Black Kraken (40/1), Truckingby (66/1), Three Castles (66/1), Fast'n Furious (66/1)

Verdict
Autumn Pride is an interesting newcomer for Mark Johnston, whilst the John Gosden-trained Forest Of Dean sets a reasonably fair standard (with stamina question marks) for the majority of his rivals to aim towards. However, such was the manner of his taking Kempton debut win, you'd be foolhardy to be against the penalised ALMOST MIDNIGHT. Jamie Spencer takes over in the saddle from Stevie Donohoe (partners stablemate Battle Of Pembroke) and he has a 26% strike-rate (13-50) on the Tapeta at Newcastle.
