Forecasts

The Abbey (11/4), Fassbender (7/2), Willyouwalkwithme (7/2), I Don't Get It (9/2), Rippon Lodge (9/2), Fallen Forest (17/2), Fleurys Fort (12/1), Mezyan (14/1), Our Brian (18/1), Lady Kapalua (22/1)

Verdict

Although a long-standing maiden over jumps, THE ABBEY is well handicapped on his chasing form and ran well in this sphere last time, so he's worth chancing with Jordan Gainford taking a crucial 5 lb off. Fassbender is also yet to shed his maiden tag, but he's in good order and likely to get involved if the pace is solid. Willyouwalkwithme is also a player if he gets his own way in front.
