Forecast

Ever So Cool (10/3), Nachi Falls (7/2), Plenty Of Butty (11/2), Arizona Glory (7/1), Cuillin (15/2), Gates Pass (8/1), Indian Harbour (10/1), Fern Owl (12/1), Kuiper Belt (14/1), Espressino (28/1), Easkey Lad (33/1), Big Chip And Pin (33/1), Alfie's Angel (40/1), Lets Go Dutchess (40/1), Freedom Chimes (50/1), Unsuspected Girl (66/1), Jackblack (100/1), Pokari (N/A)

Verdict

NACHI FALLS only just held on at Fontwell, but he still has scope on old form, so is the percentage call to complete the hat-trick. Cuillin is open to further improvement now handicapping, while Gates Pass is another who may do better still, and they head the opposition.

  1. NACHI FALLS
  2. CUILLIN (USA)
  3. GATES PASS
