Forecasts

Vulcan (8/11), Iron Mike (5/2), Tulin (5/1), Bright Eyed Eagle (7/1), Earth Business (11/1), Rectory Oak (22/1), Rock Of Star (80/1), Trwyn Du (80/1), That Ole Chestnut (100/1), Gaelic Thunder (100/1), Bruelay (100/1), Doyens De Ante (125/1), Balinesker Beach (250/1), Pol Ma Cree (400/1)

Verdict

VULCAN couldn't justify support on his hurdles debut at Ascot but he still shaped really well in a race which has since been massively franked, so gets the vote. Tulin was a winner on the Flat in France and looks an interesting recruit for Paul Nicholls, while Iron Mike is a contender back down in class.
