Forecasts

Mengli Khan (11/8), Jetz (9/4), Listen Dear (9/2), Charli Parcs (7/1), Got Trumped (16/1), Espion Du Chenet (33/1), Kasakh Noir (50/1)

Verdict

Jetz can be dangerous if thriving back over timber and getting into a rhythm out in front while the long-absent Charli Parcs is a fascinating runner on his first start after departing Nicky Henderson's yard. The market should prove very informative for him. Listen Dear is enjoying her racing this season and was a Listed winner against mares in the autumn, she's got sound claims if no worse for a fall here chasing four weeks ago. MENGLI KHAN wasn't far short of some top novices last season over fences and appears to be finding his feet back over timber. He's had two pleasing runs in Grade 3s of late under Luke Dempsey and they may gain their rewards now.
