Forecast

Sir Psycho (11/8), Nordano (5/2), Repetitio (4/1), Catch The Cuban (9/1), Arctic Snow (10/1), Magic Shuffle (33/1), George Ridsdale (33/1), Soft Summer Rain (50/1)

Verdict
Previous winners Nordano and Repetitio set the standard but both could find it tough shipping 6lb to SIR PSYCHO, who debuts here for Paul Nicholls over timber having shown clear promise on the level in Ireland already. Catch The Cuban showed more last month at Plumpton after a wind operation and could improve again.
  1. Sir Psycho
  2. Nordano
  3. Repetitio
