Forecasts

Verdict

Moderate fayre, where much will depend on who handles these conditions the best. Ever So Much is a case in point, as his form is good enough to give him a chance here, if he handles the ground. Orioninverness will handle it and could go close despite topweight, while course specialist Reverse The Charge has a squeak, but again conditions are a concern. However, it could be worth chancing BOCASIEN DESBOIS, who has been given a chance by the assessor and handles some cut.
  1. Bocasien Desbois
  2. Orioninverness
  3. Ever So Much
