Forecast

Le Musee (11/8), Nataleena (15/8), Major Snugfit (9/1), Nearly There (12/1), Bodacious Name (12/1), Waiting For Richie (12/1), Urban Spirit (12/1), Drums Of War (14/1), Coup De Gold (25/1)

Verdict
Ben Haslam's Nataleena boasts an impressive C&D record (21341) and continued on a upward curve when swooping late to claim the scalp of the well-backed Noble Behest here five weeks ago. However, she meets a very well-handicapped rival in the shape of the Nigel Hawke-trained LE MUSEE. This seven-year-old gelding is a useful dual purpose performer (145-rated over fences) who won with any amount in hand from a subsequent Ludlow hurdles scorer (Bolt N Brown) at Southwell four weeks ago. From just a 4lb higher mark, he'll undoubtedly take the world of beating with Tom Queally also an eye-catching jockey booking.
