Forecasts

Ulysses (11/10), North Star Oscar (7/2), Pottlereaghexpress (7/1), Show's Over (10/1), Nordenfelt (10/1), Racing Spirit (20/1), Harbour Force (28/1), Enforcement (33/1), Havana River (33/1), Viking Ruby (33/1), Speedy Gonzalez (33/1), Minnie Escape (50/1), Matts Legacy (50/1), Jessica Rabbit (66/1)

Verdict

North Star Oscar will be a popular choice after his win last time at Ffos Las and he should be bang there. Marginal preference is for NORDENFELT who may have more to offer off this mark after a pleasing run at Uttoxeter in June on handicap debut. Off a 4lb higher mark he should go well. Ulysses could improve now in the care of a top trainer who seems to always be in form, while Pottlereaghexpress is not out of it with the drop back in trip likely to help her cause.
