Forecast

Who's My Jockey (9/4), Bordeaux Bill (9/2), Jersey Bean (9/2), Faithful Mount (6/1), Wemyss Point (6/1), Gunfleet (6/1), Knock House (13/2), Three Ways (12/1), Brillare Momento (16/1), Whatthebutlersaw (20/1)

Verdict
It's difficult to be confident about the chances of plenty of those in the line-up, so the probability is that this race is far less competitive than the numbers imply. Bordeaux Bill demonstrated a gritty attitude when repelling a course specialist at Kelso, and with proven stamina over 3m should go very close to following up off just a 4lb higher mark. However, despite coming with minor risks attached (broken blood vessels in the past) the preferred choice is WHO'S MY JOCKEY. He was a massive eye-catcher when finishing third to a subsequent winner at Kempton on Boxing Day, he relishes a sound surface and newly-applied cheekpieces won't hinder in any shape or form.
