Forecast

Fleminport (7/2), Echo Watt (5/1), Belle Empress (5/1), Alminar (6/1), Western Climate (8/1), Book of Gold (12/1), Goodnight Charlie (14/1), Lord In Red (16/1), Spider's Bite (16/1), Zerachiel (16/1), Vinnie Lewis (20/1), High Counsel (20/1), Court Liability (22/1), Cyclop (25/1), Le Reve (28/1), Dancing Shadow (33/1)

Verdict
ECHO WATT has really taken to chasing and is progressing quickly. He defied a drop in trip with a gutsy Fontwell win last time and his previous Uttoxeter score (3m) certainly offers plenty hope this searching test of stamina will be right for him. He can defy the assessor again to continue a hot streak for trainer Richard Hobson. Lord In Red can turn around course form with High Counsel as they go up in trip, while Western Climate has been very consistent this season and should run his race. Belle Empress, Alminar and Fleminport are all worth considering – though the latter duo have stamina to prove in this marathon.
  1. Echo Watt
  2. Western Climate
  3. Alminar
