Forecasts

Fusil Raffles (9/4), Hitman (10/3), The Shunter (7/2), Eldorado Allen (7/1), Protektorat (17/2), Umbrigado (11/1), Phoenix Way (28/1)

Verdict

A mouth-watering opener in which HITMAN is taken to gain a first win at the top level having made a highly-promising start to life over fences. He should be spot on for this having made short work of his 2 opponents at Newbury last month and looks one to keep on side. Fusil Raffles heads the dangers following his recent second in the Marsh, ahead of Emmet Mullins' revelation The Shunter.

  1. HITMAN (FR)
  2. FUSIL RAFFLES (FR)
  3. THE SHUNTER (IRE)
