Forecast

Kupa River (11/4), Vive La Difference (10/3), First Response (7/2), Anif (15/2), Insurplus (9/1), Merricourt (10/1), Paparazzi (16/1), The Game Of Life (40/1)

Verdict
Not an easy race to call, with both Vive La Difference and First Response serious players if bringing their 'A' game. However, the last-time C&D win by ANIF suggests that there could be a bit more to come from him from what is just a 3lb higher mark. It isn't easy to confidently rule many out, and Kupa River, Merricourt and Paparazzi could all make an impact.
