Forecast

Iron Heart (6/4), Volkovka (11/4), Can't Stop Now (7/2), Wightman (10/1), Fighting Tiger (12/1), Shutupshirley (20/1), Numberoneson (25/1), Theocrat (40/1), Siempre Rapido (50/1), Masterdream (80/1), Presgrave (80/1), Zellerate (150/1), Impetuous (250/1)

Verdict

There was plenty to like about VOLKOVKA's Market Rasen win at the beginning of the month and she can make light of a penalty with further progress on the cards. Wightman can build on his recent Newbury hurdle debut and may provide the chief threat ahead of Fakenham-winner Can't Stop Now. Fighting Tiger is a newcomer to keep an eye on in the betting.

  1. VOLKOVKA (FR)
  2. WIGHTMAN (IRE)
  3. CAN'T STOP NOW (IRE)
