Forecasts

Imphal (2/1), Tip Top Cat (11/4), Mr Yeats (11/4), Ballymilan (7/2), Dynali (8/1), Fraterculus (9/1), Major Robinson (10/1), Glen Mooar (14/1), Top Drawer (25/1)

Verdict

Only a handful of these make any serious appeal, with the vote going to TIP TOP CAT. He hasn't shown a great deal so far, but it's still early days and this change of scenery could be just what Fergal O'Brien's new recruit requires on return from 7 months off. Ballymilan doubled her career tally at Worcester last month so she rates an obvious threat, ahead of Imphal.
