Forecast

Oxwich Bay (2/1), Demopolis (5/2), All Is Good (6/1), Bathiva (8/1), Way Of The World (11/1), Cobra Commander (12/1), Debden Bank (20/1), Sam Chisolm (20/1), Hickey's Rock (25/1), Best Director (33/1)

Verdict
OXWICH BAY had a thankless task conceding lumps of weight to a well-handicapped rival at Taunton 17 days ago. He was no match for the winner but came home a long way clear of the remainder and, from 1lb lower, can go a place better now. Chase debutants Bathiva and Demopolis could well be the ones to give him most to think about.
  1. Oxwich Bay
  2. Demopolis
  3. Bathiva
