Forecasts

Discko Des Plages (5/2), Slanelough (5/2), Smiths Cross (11/4), Black Pirate (5/1), Ain't My Fault (14/1)

Verdict

SLANELOUGH is hardly one for maximum faith given his 0-14 chase record but he has been knocking on the door this season and had Discko des Plages behind him when second at Doncaster last month. Richard Hobson's charge likely would have improved to win again at Uttoxeter last weekend had he not unseated 3 out but his jumping is a concern so Rose Dobbin's 9-y-o can confirm Doncaster placings.
