Forecasts

Kap Auteuil (6/4), Shut The Box (2/1), Hazzaar (11/2), Stage Summit (11/1), Darling Du Large (14/1), Knight Destroyer (14/1), Starjac (22/1), Rooster Cogburn (50/1)

Verdict

SHUT THE BOX posted another good effort over fences when runner-up at Newbury 10 days ago and still looks a well-handicapped horse, so he receives the vote. Kap Auteuil won a race that fell apart at Fakenham but still may have more to offer, so he's considered a threat, as is chasing debutant Hazzaar.

  1. SHUT THE BOX (IRE)
