Forecasts

Value At Risk (13/8), Full Shift (11/4), Mystifiable (7/2), Tiquer (5/1), Special Catch (10/1), Uhlan Bute (12/1), Baileys Concerto (22/1), Formidableopponent (50/1)

Verdict

A fascinating contest. Baileys Concerto loves this track and can be expected to run well, but at the age of eleven is vulnerable to an improving sort. Full Shift likes Kempton and although a shade below par at that track on his latest outing races from a dangerous mark at a track which is highly likely to play to his strengths. However, there has never been any denying that VALUE AT RISK possesses much ability, it's more a case that he's taken an eternity to get his act together over fences. On the back of a couple of good runs split months apart, he comes into this race relatively fresh with a spring campaign presumably well mapped out by his shrewd young trainer.
