Forecasts

Skilled (11/8), Miami Present (7/2), Icanmotor (9/2), Bonobo (10/1), Blackfire (10/1), Conteur d'Histoire (10/1), Kalaskadesemilley (12/1), Orchestrated (16/1), Buck Magic (25/1)

Verdict

Most of the focus here will be on SKILLED for new trainer Olly Murphy who has looked an expert at rejuvenating horses already and this isn’t a deep race at all for him to try and build on his good run last time out. Icanmotor doesn’t make that much appeal over fences and Miami Present may be able to improve on his third last time out although he’s not an obvious winner. Two at likely bigger prices that are worth watching in the market are Buck Magic and Orchestrated both of whom may be a little better than they have shown so far.
