Beyond The Pale (13/8), Presentandcounting (5/1), Dog Of War (5/1), Smith's Bay (11/2), Black Buble (17/2), Cremant (9/1), Minella Mojo (18/1)

Verdict

A very open novices' handicap chase in which marginal preference is for SMITH'S BAY who is fancied to build on his Doncaster fourth (form been franked) and put his chasing experience to excellent use. Hat-trick seeking Dog of War rates an obvious threat, although chasing-newcomers Beyond The Pale, Cremant and Presentandcounting are all worth a second look too.

  1. SMITH'S BAY
  2. DOG OF WAR (FR)
  3. BEYOND THE PALE (IRE)
