Forecast

The Composeur (10/3), Mister Murchan (9/2), Stonebrigg Legend (9/2), Peter's Portrait (9/2), Cracker Jak (7/1), Eaton Miller (12/1), Farm The Rock (14/1), Connect Four (16/1), Briery Bunny (33/1), Whiskey Moon (33/1), Miss Mash (40/1), Gustav (100/1)

Verdict

A switch to handicaps could bring about improvement in The Composeur, a €72,000 purchase representing the in-form Jonjo O'Neill string. Eaton Miller found only a thriving rival too good over fences last month and can go well despite being rated higher in this code while the consistent Peter's Portrait should give another good account. MISTER MURCHAN has really taken to the task this season upped in distance and, a winner at Plumpton 17 days ago, his 4lb rise is far from prohibitive in this follow-up attempt.
  1. Mister Murchan
  2. Peter's Portrait
  3. The Composeur
