Forecasts

Yes No Maybe So (11/4), Espalion (4/1), Mega Double (11/2), Dog Of War (13/2), Mantovani (7/1), Double Court (7/1), Cotswold Prince (9/1), Calvinist (10/1), Airton (10/1), Mystic Court (12/1), Breffniboy (25/1), Robin Des People (50/1)

Verdict

Plenty of these have chances of sorts, and no doubt that Dog Of War, for a yard that do so well here, is going to have plenty of supporters on his handicap debut. He should go well, but back on better ground it may be worth chancing ESPALION, who probably found winter ground against him for much of last season but had looked useful when winning a couple of handicaps at Chepstow, and may have more to come. Mantovani ran well on his latest start and can be considered, along with the unexposed Breffniboy, who is another for whom better ground may suit.
