Forecast

Et Apres Thou (3/1), Kilconny Bridge (7/2), The Raven's Return (4/1), Twenty Twenty (9/2), Chloe's Court (6/1), Jamessaintpatrick (6/1), Ventura Dragon (13/2), Cobaltic (7/1), Ostuni (10/1), Invicta Lake (25/1), Fort Denison (25/1), Shapiro (25/1), Vital Sign (33/1), Downe Milking Lane (66/1)

Verdict
An interesting handicap hurdle in which the mare Kilconny Bridge could bids for a four-timer after wining again at Exeter on Friday. She should be bang there but a chance is taken on ET APRES THOU who finally showed a glimmer of form last time and who may well show more stepped up again in trip off a light weight. Top weight Cobaltic could also have more to offer, while a case can easily be made for the likes of Twenty Twenty and the recent Warwick winner Jamessaintpatrick getting involved. Last year's hero Ostuni is not totally ruled out despite being 10lb higher but struggled badly when pulled up last time.
