Forecasts

Western Rules (5/6), Knockrobin (11/4), Claud And Goldie (6/1), Grand Morning (15/2)

Verdict

This looks very winnable. Knockrobin is likely to get an easy lead on the front, which might help him get this trip, but he has yet to show this is what he really wants and with the yard still under a bit of a cloud, may be worth opposing. With Grand Morning needing to get back on track, Western Rules looks the obvious one but a chance is taken that CLAUD AND GOLDIE, bred to want even further than this, might be good enough. Hes clearly taken time to come to himself (this will only be his fourth Rules start at the age of 10) but there's been enough encouragement in his novice chase starts to think he could be competitive now he goes into handicaps.
  1. Claud And Goldie
  2. Western Rules
  3. Knockrobin
