Forecasts

Culm Counsellor (5/4), Bogoss Du Perret (5/2), Guerrilla Tactics (5/1), Bennys Girl (10/1), Red Square Revival (12/1), Patsy Oriel (12/1), Backoftherock (16/1), Supreme Ambition (33/1), Golander (66/1)

Verdict

It's the two ex-pointers that make the most appeal here, and there's little to split Guerilla Tactics and BOGOSS DU PERRET but the vote just goes to the latter, who showed plenty of promise here last time and should do better again now given a longer trip. Guerilla Tactics could prove a hard nut to crack if allowed his own way on the front and he too should have more to offer from a low-looking handicap mark. Culm Counsellor put in a lovely round of jumping last time and a similar showing here should see him in the frame.
  1. Bogoss Du Perret
  2. Guerrilla Tactics
  3. Culm Counsellor
