Forecast

Welsh Saint (11/10), Firak (7/2), Some Detail (8/1), Sleight Of Hand (8/1), Kalooki (10/1), Clondaw Promise (14/1), Apple Rock (16/1), Hacksaw Ridge (16/1), Towards The Dawn (25/1), Somekindofstar (33/1), Major Dundee (40/1), Agent Valdez (50/1), Top Of The Morning (66/1), Straw Fan Jack (66/1), Writteninthesand (66/1), Cobra Angel (100/1), Dom Garo Cateline (100/1), Richie Valentine (100/1)

Verdict

On the figures Welsh Saint has a first-rate chance of getting off the mark but his latest form doesn't look as strong as it did at the time, and maybe FIRAK can improve past him. His form, on the other hand, got a big boost when the winner took a competitive Newbury novice hurdle next time and he wouldn't need much more to come out on top here. Clondaw Promise might have to face different ground than he did at Kempton but there was no mistaking his promise there, and he cannot be dismissed. Kalooki and Somekindofstar are both worth a second look.
