Forecast

Monsieur D'Arque (3/1), Knockrobin (7/2), Jaboticaba (7/2), De Forgotten One (7/2), Top Decision (11/2), Carolines Charm (16/1)

Verdict
It's hard to be very enthusiastic about any of these but top weight KNOCKROBIN did win last time and seems to have been waiting for the better ground expected here. He may get his own way up front and can follow up. This is easier than the Kempton race in which Jaboticaba ran poorly last time and he has claims on previous efforts, while Top Decision gets plenty of weight and a case can be made for him if you excuse an abysmal effort at Warwick in December when last seen. Carolines Charm also has place prospects.
