Forecasts

Ballyandy (8/13), Fagan (2/1), Mr Monochrome (16/1), Chitu (18/1)

Verdict

There are some risks in expecting BALLYANDY to be ready to score on his chasing debut having been absent since his fourth in the Supreme Novices in March. However, he has the only proven form in ground as bad as this and the 6lb he receives from Fagan compensates for the fitness advantage he concedes. The pair are rated equal on BHA ratings and Fagan has already proven his ability over these obstacles. As a triple winning point-to-pointer he looks destined to win more races over fences but his best form has come on better surfaces. Chitu and Mr Monochrome are both useful in their own right but both have shown a preference for quicker conditions and their form does not match that of the principals.
