Pogue (10/11), Oleg (11/10), Not The Chablis (12/1), Crumbs (50/1), Mymilan (80/1), Get Help (100/1)

Verdict
Not the most competitive race to kick off with, and in truth there's some disappointing field sizes given the excellent prize money that the course have put up today. Nevertheless, there's seven winners to be found and OLEG looks like he might be the first of them. Anything Paul Nicholls brings to the track is worth consideration, given 1 in 3 of his charges wins here, and Oleg, who should be a speedy type on paper, could be a cut above these. With the McCain yard yet to get back on track after their flu virus troubles, Not That Chablis might pip Pogue for second. Crumbs is a possible improver.
