Forecast

Sammy Bill (9/4), Erick Le Rouge (7/2), Sao (9/2), Mercian Prince (6/1), Gowiththeflow (8/1), Mr Medic (10/1), Cap St Vincent (12/1), First Drift (20/1), One For Billy (33/1)

Verdict
An open looking contest, and hard to rule anything out with much confidence. Sao lurks at the foot of the handicap and if he gets his jumping act together, has the potential to improve, but MERCIAN PRINCE has won this for the past two years, putting in a bold front-running display last year and with the addition of a visor to sharpen him up, might make it three. Sammy Bill looks the one to beat on recent form and will be a tough nut to crack, but is likely to represent little in the way of value. Erick Le Rouge likes this track too and there are reasons to think he could return to form today.
