Forecasts

Kilcrea Bridge (5/1), Troed Y Melin (6/1), Lizzie Langton (7/1), Great Tempo (8/1), Kovera (8/1), Clondaw Ace (8/1), Dont Be Robin (10/1), The Boola Bee (12/1), Max O (12/1), Hollow Park (14/1), Mount Oliver (16/1), Bellamy's Grey (20/1), Big Time Frank (22/1), Kingston Mimosa (25/1), Cap Horner (25/1), Mogestic (33/1)

Verdict

An extremely difficult staying-handicap chase puzzle to solve. The Boola Bee returns to fences for the first time since being pulled-up at this track, but she advertised her wellbeing when just failing to make the frame over hurdles last time out. The Colin Tizzard stable are firing on all cylinders and so Lizzie Langton is greatly respected after showing obvious improvement from her seasonal reappearance to finish third over this trip at Wincanton recently. The vote goes to TROED Y MELIN though, who produced a clear career-best when second at this track last time (comfortably clear of the third). He is completely unexposed and could go one better off a 5lb higher mark.
  1. Troed Y Melin
  2. Lizzie Langton
  3. The Boola Bee
