Forecast

Wisecracker (9/2), Agent Westy (5/1), Thomas Blossom (13/2), Champion Chase (7/1), Way Of The World (8/1), Stephanie Sunshine (8/1), American Craftsman (9/1), Glance Back (9/1), Centreofexcellence (10/1), Royal Act (14/1), Vocaliser (16/1), Ut Majeur Aulmes (18/1), Golander (25/1), Yourholidayisover (66/1)

Verdict
A race which could well see some fun and games with several of the field coming into this with profiles that are less than reliable. Agent Westy wouldn’t be one of those but he has proved luckless of late and has to cope with return to 2m. Glance Back, Centreofexcellence and Golander all have claims but the trio as a group like to go from the front and that opens up the possibility of a fast pace and something coming from off it to steal the prize. THOMAS BLOSSOM would fit that bill ideally returning to fences and he’s given a reluctant vote. Wisecracker and Champion Chase both get another chance to break their maiden but backing them to do so comes with obvious risks.
  1. Thomas Blossom
  2. Champion Chase
  3. Agent Westy
