Forecast

Blessed (3/1), What An Angel (5/1), Colonel Whitehead (6/1), Pinnata (13/2), Alfie Solomons (15/2), Claudius Secundus (9/1), Dutch Story (12/1), Tambourine Girl (16/1), Don't Tell Claire (18/1), With Promise (18/1), Penpal (28/1)

Verdict
There's no shortage of recent C&D form to dissect in what is essentially a very difficult affair. Colonel Whitehead sprung a 22-1 surprise when tackling this trip for the first time ten days ago, but should once more have the measure of the difficult to win with Alfie Solomons (third) despite the subsequent 6lb weights rise. The unexposed Claudius Secundus is thought unlikely to be too far away under the talented 3lb claimer Cieren Fallon, but the steadily-progressive BLESSED could feasibly have a slight edge from the very foot of the weights.
  1. Blessed
  2. Claudius Secundus
  3. Colonel Whitehead
