Forecast

Le Reveur (5/4), Moonlighting (7/2), Gweedore (9/2), Celestial Wood (13/2), International Lion (7/1), Penmellyn (15/2), Bye Bye Euro (12/1), Bollin Margaret (16/1), Tough Character (33/1), Free Cash (80/1), Fedora Fits (100/1)

Verdict
The fact that Sir Mark Prescott has a near 46% strike-rate with his 3yo handicappers at Hamilton points heavily in the direction of LE REVEUR who looks a typical improver from this yard who could well set up a sequence (holds an entry at Sandown later in the week). He took a while to get going last time so should relish the increased trip plus the stiff uphill finish here, the penalty not looking a significant factor. He won’t have things all his own way though as both Gweedore and Celestial Wood hold claims of winning an event such as this. Most of the others have something to prove although Tough Character and Bollin Margaret may be capable of better in time.
