Forecast

Truckin Away (3/1), Darling Maltaix (4/1), Shanroe In Milan (5/1), Shoal Bay (5/1), As I See It (7/1), Broadclyst (10/1), Plantagenet (12/1), Cap St Vincent (14/1), Lord Bryan (33/1), Quite By Chance (33/1)

Verdict
SHANROE IN MILAN was a winner last time out and he can complete a double by registering a victory in this staying handicap chase. The selection looks capable of getting the better of Darling Maltaix who showed good form when finishing runner-up on his latest start while third place can go to Shoal Bay who is making his return from a short break and has won here in the past.
  1. Shanroe In Milan
  2. Darling Maltaix
  3. Shoal Bay
