Forecasts

Sevarano (11/4), One For Rosie (11/2), Howling Milan (6/1), Now Look At Me (6/1), Dorking Boy (13/2), Soul Emotion (8/1), The Wolf (14/1), Coeur de Lion (18/1), Colonial Dreams (18/1), Point Of Principle (25/1), Hear No Evil (25/1), Limited Reserve (40/1)

Verdict

Hard to think that this isn’t competitive and there will be plenty rooting for Grade 1 third One For Rosie with that Aintree form being well advertised this year. He has won off breaks before but might just lack the match sharpness of SEVARANO who after looking expensive to follow has turned events around this year winning his last two races having developed into a more complete specimen. His latest C&D win should prove to be a useful piece of form. The Henderson pair Soul Emotion and Colonial Dreams will have their supporters although both have a little to prove whilst Dorking Boy (looks much better since his wind op) and Now Look At Me have to enter the equation in what looks a hot heat.
  1. Sevarano
  2. Dorking Boy
  3. One For Rosie
