Forecast

The Tin Miner (2/1), Age Of Wisdom (7/2), Little Boy Boru (11/2), Puppet Warrior (7/1), Velvet Cognac (15/2), Crossley Tender (9/1), Invicta Lake (11/1), Ask Catkin (16/1), Noruki (66/1)

Verdict
Ask Catkin may be better for her reappearance and is not ruled out this time, while Age Of Wisdom could get heavily involved but has to prove he sees this out. Little Boy Boru arrives out of form, but he is not written off now 6lb lower than last year's win, while Velvet Cognac is also respected. However, THE TIN MINER goes well here and is taken to add to his recent course win over shorter.
  1. The Tin Miner
  2. Velvet Cognac
  3. Ask Catkin
