Forecast

Lemon Shoulder (5/2), Watching Brief (4/1), Tis Fantastic (6/1), Franz Klammer (13/2), Wherewouldugetit (8/1), Connective (10/1), Alanjou (18/1), Strictly Art (20/1), General Picton (25/1), Western Sunrise (25/1), Snowbird (28/1), The Lion Man (100/1)

Verdict
If anything this looks even weaker than the first division. Franz Klammer's improved effort here last week looks suspect, to say the least, but if it wasn't a fluke then he's an obvious chance here. At a likely big price a better effort from Wherewouldugetit might not be the biggest shock, and the yard did have a winner earlier in the week, but LEMON SHOULDER is still unexposed and surely has better to come for the Skeltons. Strictly Art was behind the selection at Newton Abbot but wasn't that far behind him and could get closer here.
