Forecast

Commis D'Office (9/5), Pull Together (4/1), Greybougg (9/2), Roxyfet (5/1), Las Tunas (11/2), Halcyon Days (6/1), Ubaltique (12/1), Valgor Du Ronceray (40/1)

Verdict
Around this sharp track anything that gets an unopposed lead is going to be dangerous and Greybougg having fallen to a good mark will be dangerous if allowed too much rope. The Venetia Williams stable remain in good form though and her top weight COMMIS D'OFFICE is taken to appreciate going left-handed once more having run well last time in a better race than this at Chepstow. The redoubtable C&D winner Halycon Days can never be left out of the discussion but he may just need to find a little extra here. Las Tunas and Roxyfet step up in grade with the latter hoping for a strongly run race which sees him to best effect.
  1. Commis D'Office
