Forecasts

Walt (10/11), All For The Best (5/1), Doctor Look Here (6/1), Farm The Rock (6/1), Cadoudoff (8/1), Wizards Bridge (8/1), Chase End Charlie (10/1), Mondello (25/1), Ardkilly Witness (25/1), Quebec (33/1), Istimraar (66/1)

Verdict

WALT still looks well ahead of the handicapper and the 7lb penalty he carries for victory at Fontwell 11 days ago shouldn't be enough to stop him. The handicapper has given Ardkilly Witness a chance and he can go well under conditions that will suit whilst All For The Best should make his presence felt despite the ground maybe being softer than ideal for him. 1. Walt 2. Ardkilly Witness 3. All For The Best
