Forecasts

Jerrysback (1/2), Clondaw Bisto (9/2), Groundunderrepair (12/1), Zero Grand (14/1), King Uther (14/1), Jaisalmer (50/1), Midnight Queen (100/1)

Verdict

Jerrysback could be anything and throws a real spanner in the works as far as the form under rules goes. However, he makes limited appeal as punter's choice at cramped odds, so it may be more rewarding to focus on ZERO GRAND and King Uther, with the former edging the nomination as the currently more proven performer. The ground and trip shouldn’t be an issue and as big run is expected. Groundunderrepair is another that has to come into the reckoning as a likely improver – he is certainly worth considering if the market shows a swing in his favour. 1. Zero Grand 2. King Uther 3. Jerrysback
