Falco Blitz (3/1), Smarty Wild (7/2), My Way (4/1), Mellow Ben (5/1), Manofthemountain (10/1), Vinnie The Hoddie (10/1), Domaine De L'Isle (14/1), Whatswrongwithyou (20/1), Princeton Royale (66/1)

Verdict

A case can be made for a few but the most persuasive one is for FALCO BLITZ who is on an upward curve over fences and taken to make light of a 9 lb rise for his stylish Southwell victory. Smarty Wild wasn't seen to best effect when fifth at Warwick so seems sure to be on the premises, with recent C&D scorer My Way and handily-weighted Vinnie The Hoddie also well in the mix in an open handicap.

  1. FALCO BLITZ (IRE)
  2. SMARTY WILD
  3. MY WAY (FR)
