Forecast

Captain Cattistock (5/2), The Two Amigos (4/1), One Of Us (9/2), Shanroe Santos (5/1), The Caller (6/1), Chasma (10/1), Invincible Cave (20/1)

Verdict
Hard to cross off any of the seven runners, with last year's winner Shanroe Santos back for a second tile off just 1lb higher in the ratings. He's had a wind operation since he was last spotted but his lack of a prep run is a concern. The Two Amigos was progressive over fences last season and has leading claims. He's had a spin over hurdles and should go well despite top-weight. THE CALLER landed a similar event at Sedgefield in September and remains unexposed in this sphere ensuring he's fancied to defy his 6lb rise. One Of Us is another with scope for better things while Captain Cattistock should be sharper after his comeback run.
  1. The Caller
  2. The Two Amigos
  3. One Of Us
