Verdict

A decidedly trappy opener and it may pay to take a punt on HORST. He's tumbled in the weights and it's possible he will come forward from his first start after wind surgery at Sedgefield 2 weeks ago. Comber Mill ran well in front of the selection then and is feared, along with Lough Legend and veteran Xpo Universel.

  1. HORST (FR)
  2. COMBER MILL (FR)
  3. LOUGH LEGEND (IRE)
