Forecast

Charming Zen (5/2), Jenkins (7/2), One For Billy (7/2), Don Bersy (5/1), Viserion (9/1), Minellaforleisure (16/1), Maquisard (25/1), Hurricane Hollow (33/1), Le Precieux (50/1)

Verdict
If Jenkins were able to reproduce what he is rumoured to show at home he would be capable of blowing this field apart. However, he comes with too many risks and his stable companion Charming Zen may be a better proposition. Lack of a recent run may tell against him, though, and bottom weight ONE FOR BILLY may be able to take this under his good 7b claimer. Don Bersy and Viserion are not out of it, while stable companions Maquisard and Le Precieux are worth keeping an eye on.
  1. One For Billy
  2. Charming Zen
  3. Viserion
