Forecast

Spargrove (11/8), Croeso Cymraeg (7/2), Champagne Marengo (4/1), Murhib (7/1), Peripherique (8/1), Shovel It On (16/1), Spirit Of Nicobar (16/1), Bigshotte (20/1), Beau Knight (33/1), Tilsworth Sammy (33/1), Ness Of Brodgar (40/1), Roue De Charrette (50/1), Oyster Card (50/1), Mythological (66/1), Awesome Rock (80/1)

Verdict
This should be an entertaining affair to end proceedings, with many of the runners in this race bound to step up on their previous efforts for the switch to handicaps/step up in trip. Murhib won at this track three starts ago and hasn't fared badly in two subsequent starts, so must be feared off a 7lb higher mark. Meanwhile, Champagne Marengo has only been raised 3lb after gaining that elusive first career success and is considered as the main danger to the selection CROESO CYMRAEG who should be forgiven his latest effort when beaten over C&D in his bid for the four-timer. He was very keen that day and provided he settles in this larger field, should get back on track.
  1. Croeso Cymraeg
  2. Champagne Marengo
  3. Murhib
