Forecasts

Judex Lefou (11/4), The Boat (10/3), Hang Tough (11/2), Hartland Quay (13/2), Gaelic Thunder (10/1), Celma Des Bois (10/1), Cobra Commander (12/1), Ballycorr (16/1), Oxwich Bay (20/1), Fair To Dream (40/1)

Verdict

Not a race to dwell on with several of these arriving out of form. However JUDEX LEFOU opened his account at Exeter last month, and having confirmed that improvement when runner-up at Huntingdon 8 days later, Tim Vaughan's charge gets the verdict to double his career tally. The Boat, Celma des Bois and Hang Tough can fight out minor honours.

  1. JUDEX LEFOU (IRE)
  2. THE BOAT (IRE)
  3. HANG TOUGH
