Forecasts

Chef Des Obeaux (13/8), Golan Fortune (7/2), Shannon Bridge (7/2), Coole Hall (6/1), Uppertown Prince (12/1), Just Your Type (25/1), Piri Massini (33/1), Global Stage (33/1)

Verdict

A decent turn-out for this valuable prize and stamina will be very much at a premium. Chef Des Obeaux looked good when stepped up in trip at Kempton last time and represents a yard brimming with talented novices. He is sure to be popular with punters, but faces no easy task against GOLAN FORTUNE, who has been mixing it in competitive handicaps and ran a blinder at Sandown last time. The selection is game and reliable and can return to winning ways. Coole Hall stays well and enters the equation along with Shannon Bridge and the unexposed Piri Massini.
  1. Golan Fortune

  3. Coole Hall
