Forecasts

Oleg (1/1), Ballon Onabudget (6/1), The Flying Sofa (7/1), Malangen (7/1), Celtic Joy (8/1), Ballymountain Boy (10/1), Tiffin Top (14/1), New Agenda (16/1), The Premier Celtic (20/1), El Hageb Rose (33/1)

Verdict

Ballon Onabudget doesn't necessarily face an easy task on his chasing debut, while the consistent four-year-old Malangen (David Pipe) is rising steadily in the weights. Tiffin Top and Celtic Joy shouldn't be discounted on their respective chasing debuts, although the Emma Lavelle-trained runner is the more logical option with race-fitness assured. However, it's difficult to escape the alluring claims of the former French-racer OLEG. He made a winning chasing debut for Paul Nicholls in a small-field affair at Wincanton (2m) and is fancied to kick on positively despite a 6lb rise in the weights.
