Forecast

Ibleo (2/1), Keep Wondering (11/4), Mystical Clouds (3/1), Echiquier (5/1), Templepark (5/1), Favorito Buck's (8/1), Aintree My Dream (12/1), Darebin (14/1), Commandant (16/1), Ramonex (25/1)

Verdict
IBLEO has been in great form since returning from an absence and he can follow up his recent Huntingdon victory by taking this competitive looking handicap chase. Echiquier carries top weight here and he can put a disappointing effort when pulled up last time out behind him by claiming second on his return to fences while third can go to Keep Wondering who was victorious on his first start over fences last month.
  1. Ibleo
  2. Echiquier
  3. Keep Wondering
