Forecasts

Mighty Thunder (2/1), Arthurs Secret (3/1), Too Many Chiefs (4/1), Landecker (9/2), Justatenner (11/2), Very First Time (9/1), Taxmeifyoucan (20/1), Sun Cloud (33/1)

Verdict

There’s no doubt that Landecker is at home here having won this race last year off a 6lb higher mark and he does look as though he’s returning to form. He remains an awkward ride though and it will be on his terms if he wants to win this although this trip gives him plenty of chance to get rolling. The ground may be a little too quick for Too Many Chiefs while Arthurs Secret just doesn’t win often enough to be considered the main selection. That goes in the direction of JUSTATENNER who will be suited by a return to this trip with jockey Harry Reed knowing him well; he’s still capable off this mark. Mighty Thunder was a touch fortunate last time but has to be respected as a course winner.
  1. Justatenner
  2. Landecker
  3. Too Many Chiefs
