Forecasts

The Blame Game (11/10), Ferry All (11/4), If Karl's Berg Did (4/1), Lord Springfield (5/1), Achy Breaky Heart (8/1), Foster'sisland (10/1), Ben Buie (16/1), Aire Valley Lad (16/1), Begoodtoyourself (50/1), Molly Whuppie (125/1)

Verdict

THE BLAME GAME came mightily close to getting off the mark over this C&D 8 days ago, stepping up markedly on what he had shown previously after a 7-month absence. A reproduction of that effort should see him go one place better. If Karl's Berg Did showed plenty to work on in fourth on his hurdling debut last time so gets the narrow vote for second, over the penalised Lord Springfield.
