Forecast

Confirmation Bias (15/8), Barbados Buck's (3/1), Supamouse (7/2), Boulting For Glory (5/1), Only Money (7/1), Hurricane Mitch (8/1), No Strangers Here (16/1), White Walker (20/1), Bellevarde Express (20/1), One Handsome Dude (20/1), Adams Star (28/1), How's The Cricket (33/1), Alkademon (50/1), Autumn Gold (50/1), Sakhee's Conquest (66/1), Johnofgorcombe (100/1)

Verdict
It's interesting that WHITE WALKER is asked to renew rivalry with Confirmation Bias who beat him over 12 lengths when the pair made their respective debuts here last month. On 7lb better terms the selection should get a lot closer. Confirmation Bias will not be easy to beat though having shown a fine attitude to get up in the last stride and should again run well despite his penalty. Bellevarde Express showed ability in a better race at Cheltenham on debut and is a danger, while Supamouse was only caught on the line when second at Southwell and has talent. Barbados Buck's, Boulting For Glory, and Hurricane Mitch are others to note too.
  1. White Walker
  2. Confirmation Bias
  3. Bellevarde Express
