Forecasts

The Crooner (2/1), Cheque En Blanc (4/1), Acaro (5/1), Lamanver Bel Ami (13/2), Cougar's Gold (7/1), Danseur Du Large (9/1), Glance Back (14/1), Bit Of A Legend (50/1), Cooladerry King (80/1)

Verdict

Lots of these have little scope for improvement but low-mileage chaser THE CROONER got off the mark over fences at Leicester last month and is strongly fancied to follow up with that form proving very strong for the grade. Lamanver Bel Ami could be the one to chase home Venetia Williams' 6-y-o if shrugging off a modest Wincanton run with course-winner Cheque En Blanc capable of making a mark too.
