First Winter (6/4), King Ragnar (5/2), Rodin (13/2), Scottish Summit (7/1), Queen Gamrah (10/1), Triple Distilled (22/1), Mujid (25/1), Ballard Down (50/1)

Verdict

FIRST WINTER displayed a willing attitude when successful on his first try over 1m at Sandown a month ago and with the form of that race working out pretty well, a 3 lb rise is unlikely to prevent a very bold follow-up bid. King Ragnar's runner-up effort at Yarmouth last week was a personal best and he has the same mark to work with, so he's the obvious threat.
