Forecasts

Verdict

Ultra-competitive with the positive news being that all eight runners should stand their ground (second preferences elsewhere). Domaine De L'Isle keeps finding extra in order to fend off the unwanted attentions of the handicapper, and he is fully respected over this new trip. Stablemates Regal Encore (adores Ascot) and Jepeck arrive in positive spells of form, while the New Year's Day Exeter scorer Captain Drake takes his chance from a 13lb higher mark rather than tackling the Reynoldstown Novices'. Nevertheless, the selection is the Ascot specialist VALTOR who found his stamina ebbing away when third in the Portman Cup at Taunton (3m4½f) four weeks ago.
  1. Valtor
  2. Domaine De L'Isle
  3. Captain Drake
