Forecasts

My Way (4/1), Monsieur D'Arque (4/1), Guy (9/2), Captain Blackpearl (11/2), No Hidden Charges (7/1), Eden Du Houx (8/1), Ouro Branco (10/1), The Devils Drop (16/1), Awake At Midnight (18/1), Braqueur D'Or (150/1)

Verdict

A case can be made for a few of these but the most persuasive one is for the upwardly-mobile OURO BRANCO who has already racked up three wins over fences and is fancied to go in again after his excellent Newbury second last time. Dan Skelton's Monsieur d'Arque goes well fresh so is feared most after a break and wind op, while the lightly-raced The Devils Drop is another worth a second look.

  1. OURO BRANCO (FR)
  2. MONSIEUR D'ARQUE (IRE)
  3. THE DEVILS DROP (IRE)
