Forecast

Ask And Answer (5/2), Golden Sunset (9/2), Bridge Native (11/2), Captain Cruiser (6/1), School Lane (9/1), Krisquin (12/1), Witness Of Fashion (12/1), Gunfire Reef (14/1), Dubai Devils (20/1), Gone Galavanting (20/1), Blue Empyrean (20/1), Baby Bellini (28/1), The Broom Squire (50/1)

Verdict
Topweight Bridge Native returns to chasing after a confidence boosting run over hurdles where she ran up to near her best at Down Royal. She had previously shown an aptitude for fences and may the answer in this contest where there is no obvious winner. Ask And Answer will have to deal with the negative of a slight drop back in trip but if showing the same enthusiasm he has produced on his last two runs then he may give the selection most to do. Veteran Witness Of Fashion needs to be in the mood to show his best these days but this generally reliable gelding is capable of winning if some of the younger and more fancied runners fail to run their race.
  1. Bridge Native
  2. Witness Of Fashion
  3. Ask And Answer
