Forecast

Ask For Glory (1/5), Minella Beat (5/2), Eurowork (5/1), Special Buddy (16/1), The Hotelier (33/1), Into The Woods (40/1), Royal Martian (50/1), Cannie Lad (100/1)

Verdict
On what we know this looks between Minella Beat and ASK FOR GLORY and with the former possibly needing this outing after a break, preference is for the Paul Nicholls inmate who ran well in a race at Newbury that has thrown up a couple of winners already, and should continue to work out well. The ground ought not be an issue for him, and he looks the one to be with. Special Buddy's poor run at Leicester can be forgiven and he might be the best of the rest, although both Eurowork and at a likely bigger price Cannie Lad both have claims to the bronze medal as well.
  1. Ask For Glory
  2. Minella Beat
  3. Cannie Lad
