Forecast

Vorashann (5/4), Thyme White (6/1), Blacko (7/1), Goobinator (15/2), Fraser Island (14/1), Langer Dan (16/1), Olympic Honour (16/1), Running D'or (16/1), Group Stage (18/1), Goa Lil (20/1), Maskada (20/1), The Pink'n (33/1), Hasankey (40/1)

Verdict

It was by no means a strong race VORASHANN won at Fontwell last week, but he did it very easily and looks well-in under a 6-lb penalty on that evidence. Goobinator quickly made up into a fairly useful hurdler last season and has warmed up for this with a spin on the Flat at Ayr, so he's an interesting contender, as are Thyme White and Blacko, who remain the types to do better at some stage.

  1. VORASHANN (FR)
  2. GOOBINATOR (USA)
  3. THYME WHITE (FR)
