Forecast

Boldmere (11/4), Slanelough (9/2), Bob Mahler (6/1), Kings Monarch (6/1), Catamaran Du Seuil (7/1), Spider's Bite (7/1), Lithic (10/1), First Drift (11/1), Looksnowtlikebrian (14/1), Allelu Alleluia (50/1)

Verdict
An open looking handicap chase in which it could pay to take aim at a horse at double figure odds with the recent Leicester winner Boldmere clobbered by the handicapper. Lithic remains a maiden over fences and as is tradition was spotted finishing off well (under pressure) at Sandown, while the likes of Slanelough (Newcastle form advertised since by Lord Du Mesnil) and Kings Monarch could feasibly sneak a place. However, assuming that wind surgery has proved beneficial for LOOKSNOWTLIKEBRIAN a case of sorts can be made on his Carlisle comeback fourth to Pop Rockstar. The 5lb claim of Charlie Price is considered helpful to his overall chances.
  1. Looksnowtlikebrian
