Forecasts

The Con Man (9/4), Jelski (9/2), Flinck (5/1), Theatre Legend (6/1), Informateur (7/1), Don Juan Du Gouet (9/1), Crixus's Escape (14/1), Zig Zag (33/1), Altruism (33/1), The Linksman (50/1), Notwhatiam (100/1)

Verdict

Both Theatre Legend and Informateur (C&D) have strong recent form in the book but equally hold few secrets from the handicapper. Therefore, the attention switches to a trio of less exposed former novices'. Flinck made a smooth winning handicap debut at Warwick (2m3f) six weeks ago and is definite shortlist material off just a 4lb higher mark, while the fairly weighted Jelski appears to be a staying handicapper in the making (hurdles or fences) for Nigel Twiston-Davies. However, the suggestion is the Donald McCain-trained THE CON MAN who lacked the finishing kick of Marie's Rock over 2m here recently, form which could be franked earlier by Ebony Jewel (1.30)
