Forecast

Benson (5/1), Arrivederci (5/1), Buzz (13/2), Time Flies By (7/1), Belfast Banter (10/1), Malaya (12/1), Isolate (14/1), Botox Has (16/1), Kid Commando (16/1), Harambe (18/1), Not So Sleepy (20/1), Lightly Squeeze (22/1), Oakley (22/1), West To The Bridge (22/1), Cormier (33/1), Night Edition (33/1), Master Debonair (40/1)

Verdict

A host with chances in what is always one of the most competitive handicaps of the season. ARRIVEDERCI looked set to play a big part in a warm race at Haydock when departing at the third last so is perhaps worth another chance to show he's still on a good mark. Buzz, October's C&D 1-2 Kid Commando and Malaya and Harry Fry's Lightly Squeeze, who has had a wind op, head the many possible dangers.

  1. ARRIVEDERCI (FR)
  2. BUZZ (FR)
  3. KID COMMANDO
