Forecast

Cracking Find (7/2), Hawk High (9/2), Duke Of Navan (6/1), Twotwothree (6/1), Movie Legend (7/1), Wishfull Dreaming (8/1), Hatcher (10/1), Winter Escape (10/1), Western Miller (16/1), Croco Bay (20/1), Ball D'Arc (33/1), Ashoka (50/1)

Verdict
Very few of these can safely be ruled out in what is a really warm contest. Seemingly progressive second-season chaser WISHFULL DREAMING ran really well at Aintree last time out and he gets the nod today with his jumping certainly a major plus. After three seconds in as many races this term Hawk High deserves to win again and he looks sure to go well once more. Movie Legend won off this mark over C&D just 10 months ago so he also looks sure to make his presence felt.
  1. Wishfull Dreaming
  2. Hawk High
  3. Movie Legend
