Forecast

Demopolis (11/10), Song Of The Hunter (11/2), The Garrison (6/1), Long Call (7/1), Cawthorne Lad (10/1), Mongol Emperor (12/1), Hijran (14/1), Don't Ask (14/1), Scorpion Haze (18/1), Rootless Tree (33/1)

Verdict

A few of these offer potential but it's hard to ignore the rock-solid claims of DEMOPOLIS who hasn't looked back since the tongue tie went on and can provide the resurgent Philip Hobbs with another winner after his fine reappearance Market Rasen second. Handicap-debutant Song of The Hunter lacks a recent run but is still much respected with Mongol Emperor and Cawthorne Lad worth considering too.

  1. DEMOPOLIS (FR)
  2. SONG OF THE HUNTER (FR)
  3. MONGOL EMPEROR (IRE)
