Forecast

Diomede Des Mottes (4/1), Acey Milan (5/1), Ofalltheginjoints (11/2), Rapper (6/1), Smackwater Jack (15/2), Jammy George (8/1), Ocean Cove (17/2), Golden Sovereign (14/1), Crixus's Escape (20/1), One Touch (25/1), Reve (50/1)

Verdict

This looks a cracking novice handicap. DIOMEDE DES MOTTES shaped well on his chase debut/reappearance and gets the nod to build on that, but there are a host of possible dangers, headed by Colin Tizzard's Ofalltheginjoints, whose pointing background suggests he should take to fences. Ocean Cove and Jammy George are also much respected.
