Forecast

Seaweed (5/2), Legend Of France (3/1), Generous Jack (5/1), Filemon (13/2), Mercer's Troop (8/1), Shimba Hills (14/1), Golden Cannon (14/1), Sadma (16/1), Molliana (40/1), Hurry Henry (50/1)

Verdict

One of the more interesting events on the card with the first four home in a recent C&D event won by Legend Of France who now has to cope with a 10lb rise in the weights if she is to follow up that win. Second in that contest was Seaweed who should get closer at the revised weights but will still need to jump better with the third Generous Jack likely to prove a lively threat although this will be his second run back from a long break. FILEMON had been shaping well over fences and also looked a winner in waiting when third over hurdles last time and he’s given the vote here. Mercer’s Troop should be noted in the market coming from a powerful yard on handicap debut after wind surgery.
  1. Filemon
  2. Legend Of France
  3. Seaweed
