Verdict

Oxford Blu is another possible winner on the card for Olly Murphy's team given he was in contention before falling two out having been backed to produce a big run. Softer ground would help and as such the vote goes to MR DORRELL SAGE. The six-year-old is well-handicapped if taking last year's Fontwell victory at face value. The way he travelled into a challenging position last time suggests that ability is there and he will be fitter for the run. Finula will be a threat to all if Dan Skelton can bring out her best, but it is more than two years since she showed her best and he faces a mammoth challenge.
  1. Mr Dorrell Sage
  2. Oxford Blu
  3. Finula
