Forecasts

Viens Chercher (8/5), Beau Sancy (2/1), Cultram Abbey (9/2), Elusive Theatre (9/1), Lowanbehold (10/1), Blue Kascade (22/1)

Verdict

Cultram Abbey has to be respected, but his inability to win races back-to-back throughout his career is a little offputting. Viens Chercher looks a major player, but he will also probably need to find a little bit more, while Blue Kascade can be frustrating to follow, but there is no doubting his ability to win this is able to produce his optimum effort. The suggestion, therefore, is BEAU SANCY, who was progressing nicely prior to Christmas and returns freshened up after wind surgery, and is unexposed.
