Forecasts

Acdc (2/1), Takingrisks (4/1), Clan Legend (11/2), Central Flame (7/1), Wolf Sword (8/1), Plus Jamais (12/1), Greybougg (12/1), Viens Chercher (14/1)

Verdict

An each-way angle just about exists with eight declared runners, and that is probably important in a very competitive contest where you'd not want to rule out all that many. Plus Jamais excels over the Newcastle fences (2,1,1), whilst both Takingrisks and Central Flame could be considered with slightly different riding tactics applied (more restraint/taking closer order respectively). Furthermore, Acdc lurks at the foot of the weights with Richard Johnson aboard, and he dispatched a bang in-form horse on unfavourable terms at Kelso latest. Nevertheless, it is the top-weighted CLAN LEGEND who is most alluring. He's always looked every inch a chaser, and he revels in these type of conditions, and ran an absolute blinder off his revised mark at Wetherby latest to get within 2¾L of the Dr Richard Newland trained Catamaran Du Seuil.
