Forecast

Secret Reprieve (5/2), Springfield Fox (8/1), The Two Amigos (9/1), Christmas In April (9/1), Yala Enki (12/1), Truckers Lodge (14/1), Prime Venture (16/1), Bobo Mac (16/1), Ramses De Teillee (16/1), Dominateur (16/1), Vieux Lion Rouge (18/1), Lord Du Mesnil (20/1), Cloudy Glen (20/1), Captain Drake (28/1), Big River (28/1), Calipso Collonges (40/1), The Hollow Ginge (50/1), Joe Farrell (80/1)

Verdict

SECRET REPRIEVE had plenty in hand when seeing off a couple of these rivals over 3m here last month and looks well-in under just a 4 lb penalty (new mark 8 lb higher). Springfield Fox has a similarly unexposed profile to the selection and looks next best ahead of Yala Enki, who has been placed in the last 2 runnings, and Colin Tizzard's Christmas In April.

  1. SECRET REPRIEVE (IRE)
  2. SPRINGFIELD FOX
