Forecasts

Bleu Et Or (11/4), Eric The Third (4/1), Top Chief (5/1), Bogoss Du Perret (11/2), Turban (10/1), Torhousemuir (12/1), Bermeo (14/1), Whos De Baby (16/1), Eastern Lady (16/1), Irish Thistle (20/1), Gun Shy (20/1), Civitesses (50/1)

Verdict

Turban is not easy to win with these days but has place claims in this company off his current mark. Eric The Third in contrast looks fully weighted but should still give his usual honest account. Bleu Et Or has strong claims if settling better and putting in an improved display of jumping and so TOP CHIEF looks a more suitable candidate. The Tizzard runner scored well here last time and he would have been more convincing but for losing momentum at the last.
  1. Top Chief
