Forecast

I'm So Busy (15/8), Ripper Roo (7/2), Sopat (5/1), John Betjeman (15/2), Masteroftheheights (8/1), Swedishhorsemafia (10/1), Thorn (12/1), George Of Naunton (50/1), Gyllen (50/1), Just Once (66/1), Yoyo (66/1), World Trip (100/1), Go Pharisee Flyer (125/1), Soloist (250/1)

Verdict

A few with chances but MASTEROFTHEHEIGHTS shaped well on his hurdling bow at Wetherby so is fancied to bounce back from his Wincanton blip and add to his earlier bumper success. Swedishhorsemafia seems sure to build on his Sedgefield third so rates the chief threat, although John Betjeman is another who needs considering if ridden less aggressively than last time.

  1. MASTEROFTHEHEIGHTS (IRE)
