Forecasts

Stiff Upper Lip (2/1), Lillian (5/1), Sutter's Mill (7/1), Letemgo (8/1), Brown Bear (8/1), Day Of Roses (12/1), Thepartysover (12/1), Bennys Girl (25/1), General Girling (25/1), De Bene Esse (25/1), Shalianzi (25/1), Samdibien (25/1), Albatros De Guye (33/1)

Verdict

STIFF UPPER LIP would be an appropriately named winner for Oliver Sherwood given yesterday’s tragic loss of his stable star at Cheltenham. However, this fellow is at the right level for his abilities and has a solid chance of posting a welcome win (and momentary distraction) for his yard. Thepartysover likes this course and doesn’t have too much to find on the pick of his best form, while Brown Bear is worth noting in the betting. Support for Sutter’s Mill also has foundations and he is another to bear in mind if significantly backed before the off. 1. Stiff Upper Lip 2. Thepartysover 3. Brown Bear
