Forecast

First Flow (2/1), Espoir De Guye (11/4), My Way (8/1), Kobrouk (10/1), Militarian (12/1), Golden Whisky (12/1), Delire D'Estruval (14/1), On The Slopes (14/1), Garde La Victoire (16/1), Cap Du Nord (25/1), War Sound (25/1), Got Away (25/1), Mr Medic (28/1)

Verdict
One or two in this looks weighted to the hilt now including the winner of this two seasons ago Mr Medic who doesn’t look anywhere near the same form and it may be best to concentrate on the up and coming types. Heading that list is ESPOIR DE GUYE whose trainer couldn’t be in better form and comes from a race where five of the field including himself and Golden Whisky were next time out winners both of them proving they could handle testing conditions. First Flow should also be mentioned within that group although he’ll find this a lot harder than when landing odds of 1-9 at Hereford last weekend. Kobrouk and Delire D’Estruval are two others worthy of a mention at slightly bigger prices.
  1. Espoir De Guye
  2. Golden Whisky
  3. Kobrouk
