Forecast

Laughing Luis (7/2), Magic Dancer (5/1), Red Hot Chilly (11/2), Storm Rising (7/1), Turning Gold (15/2), Cornborough (8/1), Le Ligerien (12/1), Uno Mas (14/1), Minellaforleisure (16/1), Capital Force (33/1), Innocent Touch (33/1), Mister Fizz (40/1), Pyromaniac (40/1), Black Key (50/1)

Verdict
It gets no easier with this competitive finale, and may can be given chances. LE LIGERIEN is just given the vote with the promise of more to come after his bloodless Fontwell win. He has little weight to carry and may go in again. Laughing Luis , Cornborough, Red Hot Chilly and Turning Gold all come into this off the back of good efforts and none can safely be discounted. Minellaforleisure needs to turn the clock back a bit but has the backclass to get involved.
  1. Le Ligerien
  2. Cornborough
  3. Minellaforleisure
