Forecast

Pond Road (4/1), Good News (9/2), Getaway Mission (9/2), Jimmy Bell (13/2), Nessfield Blue (10/1), The Distant Lady (10/1), Fair Kate (12/1), Fifth Symphony (14/1), Jamessaintpatrick (16/1), Mr Washington (20/1), Milan Of Crystal (20/1), Way Of The World (20/1), Queens Present (22/1), Huccaby (25/1), Classic Tune (25/1), Sheila's Fancy (33/1), Battlebrave (33/1), Minella Style (40/1), Yorgonnahearmeroar (50/1), Bishopslough (66/1)

Verdict
Good News is the one that brings solid form to the table and it's hard to knock his chance of the three-timer, although this is a more competitive event than the ones he's been mopping up in, and he may need to improve again. Potential improvers include Getaway MIssion, who caught the eye at Hereford, Nessfield Blue, The Distant Ladyand POND ROAD, who may not appreciate the drop back in trip but there are a few front runners in this, and it could turn into a stamina test. That should suit him, and he gets the vote. Those wanting something at a likely large price could do worse than have a couple of quid on Battlebrave, who could do better.
