Forecast

First Account (6/5), Pogue (2/1), Im Too Generous (5/1), She'sasupermack (9/1), Destiny Is All (28/1), Carlitos Bay (66/1)

Verdict
Top weight POGUE impressed when winning at Doncaster last time out and he can register a second victory over fences by taking this novices' handicap event. The selection has a top jockey in the saddle and he can see off chasing debutant She'sasupermack who can take second spot ahead of First Account who can finish runner-up on his first start since joining his current stable.
  1. Pogue
  2. She'sasupermack
