Forecast

Le Cameleon (11/4), Silver Kayf (6/1), Wayfinder (6/1), Caswell Bay (7/1), Storm Home (8/1), Falcon Sun (9/1), Avantgardist (9/1), Theatre Mix (10/1), Looks Like Power (10/1), Paricolor (10/1), Valse Au Taillons (10/1), Juge Et Parti (12/1), Grey Getaway (16/1), Mere Anarchy (16/1), Carpool (33/1), Fukuto (50/1), Gang Warfare (66/1), Alcock And Brown (66/1)

Verdict
WAYFINDER found a couple too good last in the shape of the winner (who went on to contest a Grade 1 race next time) and the runner-up (who went on to win over this course and distance next time out). If able to maintain that level of form he looks a serious candidate to take the honours. Paricolor found it tough taking on older rivals last time at Market Rasen but had previously won twice as a three-year-old. He should be able to throw down a challenge to the selection. Avantgardist is back over a more suitable trip and if running to his best has every chance.
