Forecasts

Cyrname (5/4), Master Tommytucker (7/2), Dashel Drasher (4/1), Bennys King (9/2), Riders Onthe Storm (22/1)

Verdict

Paul Nicholls holds the key to this but at the prices MASTER TOMMYTUCKER looks the bet over Cyrname, who must bounce back from a shocker in the King George. A winner of 3 of his last 4 starts, Master Tommytucker has a Grade 1 in him if his jumping holds up and this could be the day if he can get into a good rhythm.

  1. MASTER TOMMYTUCKER
  2. CYRNAME (FR)
  3. DASHEL DRASHER
