Forecasts

Aso (5/2), Blaklion (3/1), Ami Desbois (9/2), Lake View Lad (7/1), Up Helly Aa King (15/2), Prime Venture (12/1), Tinkers Hill Tommy (12/1), Late Romantic (14/1), Dashing Perk (16/1), Sharp Response (22/1), Smooth Stepper (25/1), Psychedelic Rock (25/1)

Verdict

ASO isn't the force of old but he has been given a chance by the handicapper and his sights have been considerably lowered running in a veterans' event for the first time. Lake View Lad is the other class act in the field and he won the Many Clouds at Aintree on his return last season. Ami Desbois is another to consider starting out for Fergal O'Brien.
