Forecast

Wholestone (13/8), Minella Warrior (9/2), Aye Aye Charlie (5/1), Poker Play (11/2), Rockpoint (15/2), Redzor (14/1), Aaron Lad (40/1)

Verdict

The C&D novice chase from the opening meeting here last month may hold the key to this with the four that followed home the winner (Mulcahys Hill) all turning out again. Wholestone was the best placed of that quartet in second carrying a penalty for his Perth match win and he’s sure to run well again with his yard still in good form. However, the conditions may MINELLA WARRIOR who has 6L to make up on his conqueror but will get a real test of stamina this time around and is a taken to turn the tables. Rockpoint and Aye Aye Charlie also represent that form but Redzor is preferred to that pair despite the flimsy nature of the Fakenham form his win at that venue was gained in good style.
  1. Minella Warrior
  2. Wholestone
  3. Redzor
