Forecast

Nigel Nott (4/6), Dana Forever (13/8), Autumn Trail (7/2), Lovers Cry (12/1), Baileys Freedom (25/1), Diamonds Dream (66/1)

Verdict
The main question here is whether Chelmsford winner Nigel Nott can give that form a further boost and win again despite giving away lumps of weight to the younger types in the field. He should go close and put his experience to good use but Autumn Trail and Dana Forever have already shown that they are capable of winning at this level with the former looking to have the slightly better form. However, it may be worth taking a chance on the Fahey newcomer LOVERS CRY especially if the market speaks for this well-bred sort who wouldn’t need to be that useful to make a winning debut.
