Forecasts

Never Adapt (5/4), Ecu De La Noverie (4/1), Golden Taipan (7/1), Beltor (15/2), Fin And Game (8/1), Fransham (16/1), Darkest Day (25/1), New Agenda (50/1), Peruvien Bleu (66/1)

Verdict

NEVER ADAPT can take the finale, despite a slight reservation about the track. The way he stayed on to grab third behind Repetitio at Cheltenham suggests that a more galloping track will bring out the best in him, but as long as he's ridden prominently, can outstay them on what promises to be tacky ground. Beltor ran a little better last time and might be on the way back to some of his better form, so at a track he likes, could hit the frame. Golden Taipan and Ecu De La Noverie bring some decent form to the table but those wanting a flyer at a big price could do worse than Peruvien Bleu.
