Forecast

Eur Gone West (6/4), Choix Des Armes (7/2), Winter Soldier (9/2), Flying Verse (7/1), Muthabir (9/1), Kootenay River (10/1), Night Generation (16/1), Zero Grand (16/1)

Verdict
David Pipe has his string in good order and has found a decent opening for EUR GONE WEST to attempt to shrug aside his 7lb penalty for winning at Exeter last month. The right handed course here will suit the gelding judging by the way he jumped last time and another bold attempt can be expected. Muthabir won the 2017 renewal of this race and can go close again if the heavens open up in time for enough rain to get into the ground for him. Kootenay Rivershowed improvement last time and is also shortlisted as a live danger.
  1. Eur Gone West
  2. Muthabir
  3. Kootenay River
