Forecast

Mcfabulous (5/2), Keen On (9/1), Falco Blitz (10/1), Hurricane Harvey (11/1), Eden Du Houx (11/1), Sevarano (12/1), Blackfinch (12/1), Hometown Boy (14/1), Adicci (16/1), Stimulating Song (16/1), Shang Tang (20/1), First Lord De Cuet (22/1), War Lord (25/1), Olly The Brave (25/1), Igor (25/1), Buzz De Turcoing (25/1), Thegallantway (33/1), Republican (40/1)

Verdict
Nicky Henderson has a very strong hand here and much may depend on which horse receives the strongest market support. A slight preference is given to KEEN ON who drops back in class after failing to get involved last time in decent race at Warwick. He ran as well as could be expected that day and he may be capable of getting back to winning ways here. Falco Blitz won well on heavy ground last time at Ascot though arguably he has better form on faster ground. He should give the selection most to do. It would be easy to ignore Igor based on his below par effort last time. However, this step up in trip should help and he could go well.
  1. Keen On
  2. Mcfabulous
