Forecast

Hill Sixteen (11/4), Capard King (3/1), Glittering Love (9/2), Cash To Ash (5/1), Ascot De Bruyere (10/1), Fortified Bay (11/1), Boric (14/1), Runswick Royal (20/1), Cairnshill (25/1), Rock On Fruity (33/1), Scoop The Pot (50/1)

Verdict
An ultra-competitive 3m handicap chase in which a reasoned argument can be made for a number of those declared, not least the progressive Glittering Love and the fluent fencing Capard King. However, fortune often favours the brave so we'll elect to take on the recent C&D winner Cash To Ash (8lb weights rise) and the Sedgefield scorer Hill Sixteen (looks to be very hard work for Danny Cook) with the Jennie Candlish-trained FORTIFIED BAY. The selection was strong at the finish when out-battling a pair of subsequent winners at Market Rasen (2m5½f) on Boxing Day and promises to be even better suited by today's extra yardage.
  1. Fortified Bay
  2. Glittering Love
  3. Capard King
