Cogry (7/1), Calett Mad (7/1), For Good Measure (7/1), Shantou Village (7/1), Braqueur D'Or (8/1), Above Board (17/2), West Approach (9/1), Minella Rocco (12/1), Dell' Arca (14/1), Doing Fine (14/1), Relentless Dreamer (16/1), Captain Chaos (18/1), Laurium (20/1), Domesday Book (25/1), Swingbridge (33/1), Perfect Candidate (33/1), Rightdownthemiddle (50/1)

Verdict

A chance is taken on FOR GOOD MEASURE who is almost certain to improve dramatically now upped to this sort of trip. He must jump soundly in such a competitive contest but seems to have done so in his two starts so far albeit in smaller fields. Dangers aplenty include last year's winner Cogry with Nigel Twiston-Davies always respected at this meeting. Dell' Arca, West Approach and Doing Fine are also on the shortlist in that order of preference.
  1. For Good Measure
  2. Cogry
