Forecasts

Verdict

It may have taken him 21 attempts before TZAR DE L'ELFE finally opened his account over fences at this track last time out. He only by a nose and so the handicapper has only raised him 3lb for that maiden success, despite the fact there was a 13-length gap back to the third. In a race full of inconsistent/out of form rivals, Richard Rowe's charge can follow-up. Shanahan's Turn looks the most likely danger with the step up in trip in his favour, and the level of consistency he has been showing lately. Meanwhile, Loose Chips can back up his recent third in this grade and can confirm placings with Uhlan Bute who may have ran below-par when the pair met at Warwick last time out.
  1. Tzar De L'Elfe
