Forecasts

Giant Spirit (6/4), Great Khan (4/1), Border Control (7/1), Monatomic (8/1), Rough Night (12/1), Caveat Emptor (14/1), Pedro (14/1), Pallaskenry (20/1), Glenrua (20/1), Mohart (33/1), Southerner (33/1), Doyen Bay (33/1), Ballikanan (33/1), The Nosey Man (33/1), Kilcross Lad (33/1), Nonameyet (50/1)

Verdict

GIANT SPIRIT should benefit from this drop in class having run well for a long way in a hotly contested staying handicap hurdle last time out. Assuming he has the pace at this minimum trip he should go very well. Great Khan looks a fair bet once again to reach a place, and Monatomic won't be too far away if putting in a clear round. Border Control cannot be ruled out, and while the rest are mainly dead wood there is some hope for both Rough Night and Caveat Emptor.
  1. Giant Spirit
  2. Border Control
  3. Great Khan
