Forecast

Blacko (30/100), Scorched Earth (4/1), Guernesey (9/2), The Pink'n (7/1), Innerpickle (33/1), I'lletyougonow (33/1), Holy Hymn (80/1), Precision Prince (100/1)

Verdict
A few of these can be ruled out with confidence given how little they have showed in their careers so far. One of the more interesting contenders is Guernesey who makes his UK debut and showed promise in two starts when trained in France. He should do well for connections who have enjoyed success with similar types before. Scorched Earth arguably ran to a higher level when beaten last time out in a competitive affair, than he did when making a winning hurdles debut at Catterick. He is officially rated 1lb higher than BLACKO, but the manner in which Alan King's charge travelled on his UK debut at Taunton was particularly notable, and he can follow-up that success.
  1. Blacko
  2. Scorched Earth
  3. Guernesey
