Forecast

Champagnesuperover (6/4), Bass Rock (13/8), Honor Grey (6/1), Ugo Du Misselot (9/1), Melanamix (18/1), Simple Rules (18/1), Operation Overlord (28/1), Famous Moment (150/1), Worcester Pearmain (200/1)

Verdict

A few of these offer potential but BASS ROCK sets the bar quite high so is taken to open his account after twice hitting the bar for his new connections this term. Champagnesuperover has yet to reproduce his useful bumper form over hurdles but returns after a wind op now so is much respected for his in-form yard with Melanamix and Simple Rules appealing as the pick of the rest.

  1. BASS ROCK (FR)
  2. CHAMPAGNESUPEROVER (IRE)
  3. MELANAMIX (IRE)
