Forecast

Dogon (7/4), Katpoli (9/4), River Bray (11/2), Lord Duveen (11/2), Hey Bud (10/1), Hurricane Arcadio (33/1), Westerner Ocean (33/1), Mr Stubbs (50/1), Clondaw Whisper (50/1), Broke Away (66/1), Sweet Obsession (66/1)

Verdict

KATPOLI and Dogon appear the duo to concentrate on here. The latter has twice run well in good races at Cheltenham since winning at Huntingdon in November and appears to have fair claims of regaining the winning thread now. Paul Nicholls' inmate meanwhile was pitched into a graded Cheltenham contest on debut in December and should be much better than he showed then. He is already a (chase) winner in France and can go well. River Bray and Lord Duveen look the best of the rest.
  1. Katpoli
  2. Dogon
  3. River Bray
