Forecasts

Acey Milan (5/2), One For The Team (4/1), Versatility (11/2), Dolphin Square (7/1), Anytime Will Do (9/1), Vive Le Roi (10/1), Ainchea (10/1), Thunderstruck (12/1), Dell' Arca (33/1)

Verdict

It’s not hard to make a case for the majority of this field but the two tucked away at the foot of the weights take the eye the most. That duo are lead by VERSATILITY who gave a strong impression that 3m would suit when he was fourth at Ascot last time over 2m6f staying on well at the death. Thunderstruck ought to find this test more suitable than those he has been facing in novice hurdles off what looks a workable opening mark. Dolphin Square can’t be left out of the equation having shown a liking for this trip under positive tactics at Ludlow last time. One For the Team has to be respected while a note should be made of a market move for Ainchea who is well handicapped on his old form.
  1. Versatility
  2. Thunderstruck
  3. Dolphin Square
