Forecast

I'm To Blame (11/8), On The Blind Side (6/4), Sam's Adventure (5/1), River Frost (10/1), The Some Dance Kid (16/1), Niven (22/1), Felix Mendelssohn (50/1), Divine Port (50/1)

Verdict
Nicky Henderson sends the 145-rated chaser On The Blind Side north seeking a confidence boosting success. On paper his chances of winning the race are relatively strong, so undoubtedly plenty will be enticed into offering the eight-year-old gelding their financial backing. However, he has been known to lack application in the heat of a battle and this is no 'gimme' with the once useful bumper winners Sam's Adventure (3-4) and I'M TO BLAME (2-2) in opposition. The Keith Dalgleish-trained runner has become somewhat of a winning machine (6-11) and offers the value based each-way alternative to the long-distance traveller.
