Forecast

Turtle Wars (3/1), Opening Batsman (7/2), Bally Longford (9/2), Royal Supremo (5/1), Poker School (6/1), Mine's A Pint (8/1), Un Beau Roman (14/1), Zaliapour (66/1)

Verdict
A race that has plenty of question marks surrounding the majority of the protagonists with TURTLE WARS taken to capitalise on his eye-catching Newbury fifth last time where he jumped and travelled well despite the drop back to 2m4f. Royal Supremo was a taking winner when last seen but he has had a long break since romping home at Southwell with a 10lb rise in the handicap also to deal with. Opening Batsman, Poker School and Bally Longford all have their quirks and negative traits to deal with and Mine’s A Pint if he jumps soundly has a better chance of going close as he’s still unexposed over fences.
  1. Turtle Wars
  2. Royal Supremo
  3. Mine's A Pint
