Forecasts

Well Above Par (4/6), Glittering Love (9/5), Calivigny (11/4), Emerald Chieftan (6/1), Outnumbered (22/1), Grimthorpe (50/1), Court Painter (50/1), Scorpo (100/1)

Verdict

WELL ABOVE PAR returned to action with an easy success over C&D last week, delivering on the promise he threatened to have in this discipline. It will be disappointing if there isn't better to come from him and, despite the penalty, he looks the one to be with. Glittering Love's record under rules is poor but this multiple point-to-point winner could have more to say now jumping fences while exposed Carlisle winner Calivigny and Emerald Chieftan are best of the remainder.
