Forecast

Split Down South (7/2), Venture (4/1), Fen Breeze (5/1), Lalania (6/1), Swiss Pride (6/1), Suzi's Connoisseur (10/1), Excellent George (12/1), Golden Force (12/1), Nick Vedder (20/1), Omran (25/1), Camachess (33/1)

Verdict
A race in which plenty have questions to answer, preference is for EXCELLENT GEORGE to belatedly get back to winning ways. The eight-year-old boasts impressive C&D form and his latest effort suggested the spark is coming back into him and this trip is expected to suit better. Swiss Pride was a good yardstick for his previous yard and while his latest wins have come in easier company, there is every chance he will improve on his recent stable debut effort, while the likes of Fen Breeze and Lalania have previous C&D wins under their belt but have been found wanting slightly in this type of company.
  1. Excellent George
