Forecast

Shaughnessy (7/2), Cavok (9/2), Bill And Barn (5/1), Top And Drop (6/1), Western Climate (6/1), Air Navigator (6/1), Bob Ford (10/1), Holdbacktheriver (12/1)

Verdict
SHAUGHNESSY has shown enough in his two chase start to date to suggest a victory is just around the corner and while he is up against some experienced chasers here, he has more scope for improvement than most of his rivals and can go close as long as he handles the expected heavy underfoot conditions. Air Navigator is a reliable chaser who has the ability to turn in above average performances and starting to look well handicapped on past achievements. Western Climate has been showing much improved form of late and should be in the firing line if carrying on at that level.
