Forecast

Thats My Rabbit (10/3), High Up In The Air (9/2), The Premier Celtic (6/1), Affaire D'Honneur (7/1), Zoltan Varga (10/1), Ede'iffs Elton (11/1), Vicenzo Mio (16/1), Nessfield Blue (16/1), Kalarika (16/1), Sauvignon (20/1), Royal Concorde (20/1), Kalabee (50/1), Cassivellaunus (50/1), Bostin (100/1), Schap (100/1)

Verdict
Colin Tizzard won this race 12 months ago and in KALARIKA who won well at Exeter in the manner of an improving mare he has the most likely winner here too. Of course there are plenty of decent alternatives with fellow last time out winner Thats My Rabbit probably the biggest danger. A potentially value alternative for each-way backers in lightly-raced well-bred Royal Concorde.
  1. Kalarika
  2. Thats My Rabbit
  3. Royal Concorde
