Forecasts

Ami Desbois (10/3), Maitree Express (4/1), Dragon D'Estruval (4/1), Al Shahir (4/1), Solomon Grey (7/1), Give Me A Copper (10/1), Diplomate Sivola (11/1), Coup De Pinceau (33/1), Dalahast (125/1)

Verdict

MAITREE EXPRESS has enjoyed plenty of success between the flags and was arguably unlucky not to make a successful hunter debut at Wincanton, so he gets the nod ahead of Dragon d'Estruval, with Solomon Grey an obvious threat if he can find some of his old spark.

  1. MAITREE EXPRESS
  2. DRAGON D'ESTRUVAL (FR)
  3. SOLOMON GREY (FR)
