Forecast

Le Grand Fromage (5/4), Darry Desbois (3/1), The Ferry Master (9/2), New Frontier (5/1), Whateva Next (12/1), Destiny Is All (18/1), Teescomponentstrig (20/1), Beneficial Quest (20/1), Sometimes A Fox (25/1), Time For An Oscar (100/1), Look Now (100/1), On We Go (200/1)

Verdict
An interesting opener in which Darry Desbois brings recent course form (2m) to the table. However, a trio of newcomers catch the eye with LE GRAND FROMAGE, Whateva Next and New Frontier all expected to prove capable of winning races. Whateva Next is a well-related four-year-old who made a winning start in a point-to-point before switching to George Bewley for £53,000. Meanwhile, the Keith Dalgleish charge has already undergone wind surgery and is bred for chasing long-term. However, with Nico De Boinville travelling north, the Tom Lacey-trained son of Kayf Tara (a brother to Ballyandy) makes most appeal.
  1. Le Grand Fromage
