Forecasts

Logan Rocks (11/4), Perfect Predator (3/1), Blakeney Point (9/2), Baron De Midleton (6/1), Spice War (6/1), Borodin (14/1), Exploiteur (16/1), Racks Cross (33/1), Shah An Shah (80/1)

Verdict

Although up against some useful Flat performers who could be smart hurdlers LOGAN ROCKS represents far and away the safest bet on the back of his smooth Huntingdon success last month on similar ground. Listed winner Blakeney Point has the potential to be a big danger if jumping soundly and he may be a greater danger than Perfect Predator although that one is expected to leave his latest odds-on flop well behind now.
  1. Logan Rocks
  2. Blakeney Point
  3. Perfect Predator
