Forecasts

Midnight Chill (11/10), Middlebrow (5/2), Halcyon Days (7/2), Buyer Beware (11/1), Nicolas Chauvin (18/1)

Verdict

Top weight MIDDLEBROW can follow-up his Kelso success in October by taking this small field handicap chase. The selection has the trip and forecast underfoot conditions to suit and he can see off Midnight Chill who looked to have improved for wind surgery when scoring last time. Third place can go the way of Halcyon Days who should find this distance more suitable having weakened over further last time.
