Forecasts

Trixster (5/1), Django Django (11/2), Lygon Rock (11/2), Skidoosh (6/1), Court Liability (6/1), Diamond Fort (9/1), Sunnytahliateigan (10/1), Faithful Mount (12/1), Creep Desbois (14/1), Sliding Doors (14/1), Boreham Bill (16/1), No Hiding Place (18/1)

Verdict

Trixster might well get his own may out in front here, and will be tough to pass if allowed his own way. He's had a long season, but is keeping his form well, and is not to be dismissed. Faithful Mount will be happy to take a lead off him and could get in the frame, with conditions to suit him once more, but the vote goes to DIAMOND FORT, who will appreciate this return to better ground and the cheekpieces to help him concentrate.
  1. Diamond Fort
  2. Faithful Mount
  3. Trixster
