Forecasts

The Jam Man (7/2), Cloudy Morning (4/1), Stowaway Forever (4/1), Battling Spirit (4/1), Crazyheart (5/1), Ellie Mac (5/1), Peacocks Secret (9/1), You Can't Catch Me (14/1), Thekingofconnemara (14/1), Runyon Rattler (16/1), Mill Quest (20/1)

Verdict

Crazyheart was highly impressive last time and a similar round of jumping would expose the flaws that many of his rivals have in that department. However, the prospect of quicker ground tempers enthusiasm. Preference is for CLOUDY MORNING who always gives a good account here and who looks better handicapped than most as he meets Crazyheart on 5lb better terms than when chasing him home over an inadequate trip here last month. Battling Spirit and You Can't Catch Me are veterans who won last time and the former looks the better treated of the pair, whilst Ellie Mac and Peacocks Secret will appreciate the drop in class.
  1. Cloudy Morning
  2. Crazyheart
  3. Battling Spirit
