Forecasts

De Forgotten One (10/3), Enqarde (4/1), Yalltari (11/2), Cobolobo (6/1), Crossley Tender (7/1), Classic Ben (8/1), Singlefarmpayment (10/1), The Kings Writ (14/1), Favorito Buck's (16/1), Flintham (18/1), Townshend (28/1), Bigirononhiship (28/1), Fauburg Rosetgri (66/1)

Verdict

A tightly-knit handicap in which DE FORGOTTEN ONE is fancied to continue his fine run since joining Richard Hobson and make it win number three for the season now he steps back up in distance. Handily-weighted Yalltari is feared most after showing clear signs of a revival at Chepstow last time, although both Crossley Tender and Cobolobo warrant plenty of respect too.

  1. DE FORGOTTEN ONE
  2. YALLTARI
  3. CROSSLEY TENDER
