Forecast

The Groove (11/4), Field of Vision (5/1), Trotter (15/2), Secondo (8/1), The Establishment (17/2), Secret Potion (10/1), Champagne Bob (10/1), Swanton Blue (11/1), Who Told Jo Jo (12/1), Major Valentine (14/1), Hollander (16/1), Alfie's Angel (33/1), Mabo (33/1), Compton Poppy (33/1), Jacksonfire (66/1)

Verdict
THE GROOVE has hit form at the right time for this and he will be hard to overhaul if he betters last week's effort at Salisbury. Swanton Blue can go well fresh and has a C&D win to his name, so also merits serious consideration, while Secondo and the in-form Trotter are a couple of others that are likely to be thorns in the side for the selection.
  1. The Groove
  2. Swanton Blue
  3. Secondo
