Forecast

Captain Tom Cat (3/1), Son Of Camas (7/2), Whatsupwithyou (9/2), Shinobi (11/2), Dagueneau (6/1), Topofthecotswolds (15/2), Stimulating Song (9/1), Kepagge (11/1), Nebuchadnezzar (33/1), Lord Lamington (40/1)

Verdict

It's possible TOPOFTHECOTSWOLDS is a better chaser than hurdler, but he ran a fine race in a decent C&D novice last month and seems sure to give it another good shot on this switch to handicaps for an in-form yard, so he gets the nod. Captain Tom Cat is open to further improvement, while it's unlikely we've seen the best of Whatsupwithyou.
