Forecasts

Cotswold Way (1/1), Hillcrest Fire (9/2), Thahab Ifraj (5/1), Voodoo Doll (5/1), Weebill (10/1)

Verdict

Thahab Ifraj caused a shock last time, but it wouldn't do to dismiss that lightly and with Richard Johnson now booked, he can acquit himself well in this follow-up bid. Weebill was progressive before a slightly better contest found him out last time. He will need a bit of improvement to get back to winning ways, while similar applies to Hillcrest Fire. Preference, therefore, is for COTSWOLD WAY, who arrives in decent form and could be the one on his handicap debut.
