Forecasts

Skandiburg (13/8), Coole Well (13/8), Espion De Saflo (6/1), Eclair Des Sablons (8/1), Chez Hans (12/1), Commander Miller (16/1), Slaine (100/1), Spectaculis (200/1)

Verdict

He wasn't able to match a confidently ridden winner last time at Doncaster but COOLE WELL still beat off the remainder with plenty in hand. He's got the best form in the book and should be at home now upped in distance. French import Espion De Saflo offered something to work with in his Plumpton debut for Gary Moore and may be that bit sharper now while Skandiburg drops in grade and ought to be in the mix. It will be interesting to see how the market judges Commander Miller, disappointing in both runs last year but now having undergone wind surgery and still with Nicky Henderson.
  1. Coole Well
