Forecast

Mymilan (3/1), Cudgel (4/1), Ballybreen (9/2), Gatacre Street (6/1), Real Armani (8/1), Hard Knocks (9/1), Asking For Answers (9/1), Trimmers Lane (40/1), Son Of Feyan (100/1), K O Kenny (150/1)

Verdict
A case can be made for plenty of these and it should be very competitive as such. Mymilan probably wasn't helped by the low sun last time at Kelso, with plenty fences left out. He's got more to offer while Ballybreen is also thriving after successive wins at Hereford and Exeter. His latest ratings-rise isn't certain to ground him. Asking For Answers and Hard Knocks make solid appeal but this might fall to CUDGEL. He was no match for the winner at Catterick last time but that was only his second chase start and that rival has won twice since. Further improvement can make James Walton's charge a tough nut to crack now.
  1. Cudgel
