Forecast

Tegerek (2/1), Nordic Combined (9/4), Mount Windsor (9/2), Escrime D'Art (8/1), Fukuto (12/1), Grand Slam (14/1), Sainte Doctor (16/1), Initiative (25/1), The Garrison (50/1)

Verdict
Plenty of focus will be on Tegerek here after his 10L romp to victory at Huntingdon last time and he should be capable under a 7lb penalty of putting up a good display. However, MOUNT WINDSOR was far from disgraced at Kempton last time and some of his other hurdles form shows him in a good light plus he looks well handicapped on his useful bumper form. The green and gold hooped colours carried by Grand Slam and Sainte Doctor will be of interest with both having flashed ability that signalled they would be well worth watching in handicaps especially if there is a strong market move for either of them. Escrime D’Art is another handicap newcomer who won’t look out of place in this.
