Forecasts

Porlock Bay (4/9), Tel'art (4/1), Another Venture (8/1), Sir Mangan (10/1), Salvatore (14/1), Quarenta (22/1), Dieu Vivant (40/1), Unai (66/1)

Verdict

PORLOCK BAY showed a cracking attitude to land a Hunter Chase at Cheltenham last March and, having shown his well-being between the flags recently, he's fancied to make a winning return to Rules at the likely expense of Another Venture who made a respectable start in this discipline when second at Ludlow 22 days ago. A return to form from Quarenta would make him a big player.

  1. PORLOCK BAY (FR)
  2. ANOTHER VENTURE (IRE)
  3. QUARENTA (FR)
