Forecasts

Kings Walk (7/2), Early Du Lemo (7/2), Vado Forte (4/1), Jaisalmer (9/2), Mr Antolini (5/1), Remiluc (6/1), Alberta (33/1), Thats My Rabbit (33/1)

Verdict

The top two on the card have the best form and might be able to prove their class despite giving away weight. REMILUC produced a really excellent effort in the County Hurdle at Cheltenham amidst a fine season. He's up 4lb now, will handle conditions and might just be up to carrying top-weight. Imperial Cup winner Mr Antolini is by no means ruled out despite his penalty and should go well against for Nigel Twiston-Davies. The progressive Vado Forte must defy a 12lb ratings hike but isn't dismissed while the reappearance of Early Du Lemo at Newbury was encouraging and he could have plenty more to say for himself on just his fourth start on British soil.
  1. Remiluc
  2. Mr Antolini
  3. Early Du Lemo
