Forecast

Whoshotthesheriff (7/4), The Con Man (9/4), Better Getalong (7/2), The Dutchman (5/1), Eternally Yours (6/1), Sam's Gunner (16/1)

Verdict
He was an eyecatcher at Ascot on his penultimate start in hot company and WHOSHOTTHESHERIFF simply didn't jump well enough in last month's Betfair Hurdle to give himself a chance. This represents a class-drop and he can take advantage by building on his previous promise. The Con Man is also dropping in grade from a good Ascot event and could have further improvement to come while Better Getalong represents a stable in blistering form and has recently been hinting at a return to form.
