Forecast

Butte Montana (11/4), The Newest One (11/2), Mustang Alpha (6/1), Time Flies By (13/2), Barbados Buck's (7/1), Grumpy Charley (9/1), Carys' Commodity (10/1), Big G (12/1), Mahler's Promise (14/1), Bit On The Side (14/1), Lady In Hiding (16/1), Castledhem (16/1), Jac Brown (22/1), Wee Goldie (25/1), A Book Of Intrigue (33/1), Stimulating Song (50/1), Sabbathical (50/1), Arctic Valley (66/1), Secret Court (100/1), Arc Of Bubbles (100/1)

Verdict
The Newest One and Barbados Buck's are both closely related to star performers and could be anything, while other newcomers such as Time Flies By and Big G are also respected. Fergal O'Brien has won this the last two years and his newcomer BUTTE MONTANA is a tentative selection to maintain the sequence at decent odds in a race the yard clearly target. They're in fine form at present too. Of the previous winners A Book Of Intrigue looks best, while Cary's Commodity should have won last time but swerved and unseated rider close home. Grumpy Charley and Mahler's Promise are others worth a glance.
