Forecast

Kayf Adventure (15/8), Seeyouatmidnight (7/2), Sametegal (7/2), Plaisir D'Amour (5/1), Virgilio (6/1), Cold March (8/1), Tiquer (9/1), Pain Au Chocolat (10/1), Dusky Lark (14/1)

Verdict

PAIN AU CHOCOLAT ran well to finish runner-up at Wetherby last time out and he can record his fourth win over fences in this competitive handicap chase. The trip and ground should both suit and Rebecca Menzies charge can get the better of Sametegal today with Kayf Adventure taken to claim third having finished mid-division at last weeks Cheltenham Festival.
  1. Pain Au Chocolat
  2. Sametegal
