Forecasts

Little Bruce (15/8), Brian Boranha (5/1), Sumkindofking (6/1), Manwell (6/1), Kingswell Theatre (15/2), Chase The Wind (17/2), Milansbar (14/1), Pickamix (14/1)

Verdict

CHASE THE WIND has been running well in recent starts and he can register a victory stepping up in distance in the 2020 renewal of the North Yorkshire Grand National. The selection has the forecast going to suit and he can see off Little Burce who finished runner-up here 12 months ago. Third place can go to the veteran Milansbar who is well handicapped on his old form.
  1. Chase The Wind
