Forecasts

Capard King (7/2), Some Chaos (4/1), Le Reve (9/2), Rons Dream (5/1), Blue Flight (7/1), Claud And Goldie (7/1), Calipso Collonges (7/1), Gold Opera (14/1)

Verdict

Some Chaos was impressive last time at Wincanton but this will surely be tougher and he's gone up a fair chunk. His jumping previously at Cheltenham was sketchy and that might resurface in this competitive affair. The veteran Le Reve is thriving coming here bidding for a hat-trick and needs respecting while Rons Dream will also have designs if over her recent mishap. BLUE FLIGHT took the scalp of Black Corton to win a Listed race here over 3m last time and remains a progressive sort despite rocketing up the ratings for that win. He might well defy the assessor.
