Forecasts

Verdict

Plenty worthy of consideration, but STRONG GLANCE returned with an excellent third in an up-to-scratch listed handicap at Market Rasen a month ago, and sure to improve for the return to this trip, he could be the answer. Clever As A Fox arrives here on the up and is feared with a top conditional rider taking over, while Monte Cristo should have more to offer this term.

  2. CLEVER AS A FOX (IRE)
  3. MONTE CRISTO (FR)
