Forecast

El Ghazwani (4/7), Mr Scaramanga (7/2), Smile A Mile (6/1), Normal Norman (7/1), Ours Puissant (12/1), Greatest Journey (16/1)

Verdict
Another small-field affair, with Ours Puissant one of the unknown quantities as he is upped to 1m2f for the first time on his return from a 295-day absence. Some of his back form would make him of interest in what looks an uncompetitive affair, and he is one of the more lightly raced sorts. The in-form Hugo Palmer look to hold all the aces with their C&D specialist EL GHAZWANI the selection. He mowed down his opposition from off the pace in impressive fashion last time out, & he can add to his outstanding record at this venue. Smile A Mile can make the frame once again after he got himself back on track when runner-up to an inform rival last month.
  1. El Ghazwani
  2. Smile A Mile
  3. Ours Puissant
