Forecast

Heavey (4/1), Sizing At Midnight (9/2), Wayfinder (9/2), Summit Like Herbie (5/1), Monkey Puzzle (6/1), Cool Destination (6/1), Commit Or Quit (13/2), March Is On (11/1), Norwegian Woods (12/1), Jasmin Des Bordes (14/1), Ballymagroarty Boy (18/1), Ring The Moon (22/1), Montanna (33/1), Jembug Drummer (50/1), Kiera Royale (80/1)

Verdict

MONKEY PUZZLE displayed a willing attitude when making his second chase start a winning one at Fontwell in August and there's every chance he has more to offer, so a 3 lb rise is definitely within range. Wayfinder and Commit Or Quit are bred to excel as staying chasers and are just a couple of possible threats.

  1. MONKEY PUZZLE
  2. WAYFINDER (IRE)
  3. COMMIT OR QUIT (IRE)
