Forecast

Just The Man (15/8), Aegeus (5/2), Sky Defender (3/1), Michele Strogoff (6/1), Wimpole Hall (7/1), The Jean Genie (9/1), Humbert (10/1), Sezim (16/1)

Verdict
After over 6 months off there was plenty to like about SKY DEFENDER's fourth here latest and Mark Johnston will no doubt now be keen to make up for last time with this Bath winner who surely is open to plenty of improvement. Handicap debutant Aegeus is a danger having crept in at the bottom of the weights even though he's 1lb out of the handicap. Just The Man ran poorly last time without obvious excuse but his form beforehand is sufficient to rate him a live contender.
  1. Sky Defender
  2. Aegeus
  3. Just The Man
