Forecasts

Le Ligerien (2/1), Present From Dubai (9/2), Generation Gap (5/1), Fubar (7/1), Mr Chua (8/1), Fibonacci (12/1), King D'Argent (12/1), Shut The Box (14/1), Who Shot Jr (25/1), Fukuto (40/1), Alcock And Brown (150/1)

Verdict

Probably not too many to concentrate on. Down the foot of the handicap, cases can be made for both Fibonnaci and Mr Chua but PRESENT FROM DUBAI relished the slow ground when successful at Uttoxeter last time, and this lightly raced 7yo still looks very well handicapped on some of his novice form. He can score again before the handicapper starts to get to grips with him. Le Ligirien is usually on the premises and the useful Ben Jones takes 5lb off, which gives him every chance of hitting the frame again, and there's every chance of improvement from Generation Gap as well.
  1. Present From Dubai
  2. Mr Chua
  3. Le Ligerien
