Forecasts

Highland Hunter (11/4), Milvale (4/1), Skipthescales (13/2), Sultans Pride (7/1), Better Getalong (15/2), Late Romantic (10/1), Off The Hook (11/1), Planet Nine (12/1), Takingrisks (14/1), Justatenner (16/1), Chocolat Noir (18/1)

Verdict

The one who stands out is HIGHLAND HUNTER, who did well to get his head in front at Musselburgh in February on just his second start for Paul Nicholls. A 5 lb rise almost certainly underestimates this 7-y-o. Skipthescales was beaten almost 8 lengths when third to Sultans Pride at Hexham, but he enjoys a healthy pull at the weights and is second choice ahead of Gillian Boanas' representative.

  1. HIGHLAND HUNTER (IRE)
  2. SKIPTHESCALES (IRE)
  3. SULTANS PRIDE
