Forecasts

An Tailliur (10/3), Theocrat (4/1), Grandee (4/1), Letsbe Avenue (5/1), Flanagans Field (13/2), Troed Y Parc (13/2), Shadow's Girl (9/1), Serveontime (14/1), Don Juan Du Gouet (18/1), Johni Boxit (20/1), Lucky Circle (50/1), Time Is Time (125/1)

Verdict

GRANDEE is potentially thrown in on Flat form having been handed an opening mark of 93 so, while he's achieved little over hurdles to this point, he's worth chancing if the market speaks in his favour. Fellow handicap debutants An Tailliur and Troed Y Parc are others to consider.
