Forecast

Charlie D (2/1), Fearless Warrior (9/4), Hooflepuff (4/1), Blue Medici (6/1), Zabeel Star (7/1), Glan Y Gors (12/1), Never Surrender (14/1), Running Cloud (16/1)

Verdict
Hooflepuff kept a positive spell of form going when scoring in first-time blinkers here (1m4f) four weeks ago, and would rate as a definite contender on the assumption that his stamina reserves hold (no obvious reason as to why they shouldn't). Zabeel Star (jumpers' bumper) and Glan Y Gors (Class 5) are both recent Newcastle winners with a fraction more on their respective plates. Therefore, the most logical selection is last week's impressive Southwell scorer CHARLIE D. Tom Dascombe's charge carries a 5lb penalty for that success but with previous Wolverhampton winning form (1m4f) on his CV, he's almost certain to be feared by all and sundry.
