Forecast

Barnaviddaun (15/8), Arcadian Sunrise (9/4), Funky Dady (4/1), Scardura (5/1), Sonnenkonig (20/1), Good Luck Hope (25/1), It Could Be You (33/1)

Verdict
SCARDURA holds plenty of Cheltenhgam entries and if still aimed at the Festival then he should be good enough to win this contest devoid of any really unexposed types. The six-year-old won well at Taunton last year but was below par when attempting a Grade 2 event for the first time. If reproducing the form of his win then he may prove hard to beat. Barnaviddaun was beaten by Funky Dady but on the revised weights, the seven-year-old should have the beating of his rival. Arcadian Sunrise looks to be progressing nicely and if continuing his improvement then he can play a major role.
  1. Scardura
  2. Barnaviddaun
  3. Arcadian Sunrise
