Forecasts

Polly's Pursuit (10/3), Walsingham Grange (7/2), Ashkoul (9/2), Dinsdale (11/2), Gregarious (11/2), Ardmayle (11/2), Capitoul (11/2), Excellent Team (10/1)

Verdict

An open race in which a positive market move for Dan Skelton's handicap debutant Ashkoul could be significant considering he also saddles Excellent Team with brother Harry booked. If the money doesn't arrive, a solid case could be made out for Nicky Henderson's POLLY'S PURSUIT who probably found a stiff 2m2f at Exeter too much of a test in soft ground last time. She is better judged on narrow defeat at Doncaster previously and better ground here will undoubtedly suit. Walsingham Grange is also respected.
