Forecasts

Captain Buck's (10/11), Dark Mahler (7/2), Absainte (4/1), Magna Sam (13/2), Six A Side (9/1), Bletchley Castle (14/1), West Torr (33/1), Royal Chant (40/1), Midnight Request (50/1), Thyne For Gold (50/1), Peep O'day Dell (100/1)

Verdict

CAPTAIN BUCK'S should have too much class for some moderate rivals provided he retains most of the ability that he showed for Paul Nicholls, so he's an obvious choice to take this. Six A Side warrants respect based on his pointing exploits and Bletchley Castle can't be completely dismissed.

  1. CAPTAIN BUCK'S (FR)
  2. SIX A SIDE (IRE)
  3. BLETCHLEY CASTLE (IRE)
