Forecasts

Dutch Decoy (5/2), The Great Heir (11/4), Lasting Legacy (6/1), Seas Of Elzaam (9/1), Old News (11/1), Theotherside (12/1), Daafr (12/1), Danielsflyer (16/1), The Met (16/1)

Verdict

THE GREAT HEIR has a good record here this winter and can deservedly get his head back in front for the first time since 2018. Mark Johnston's consistent Dutch Decoy rates an obvious danger, while Theotherside had some good efforts in higher grades than this last summer and could also play a part if primed after a break.
