Forecasts

Shut The Box (9/4), Defi Sacre (10/3), Editeur Du Gite (7/2), Le Ligerien (11/2), William H Bonney (8/1), Movie Legend (10/1), Foxboro (18/1), Est Illic (18/1), Saintemilion (66/1)

Verdict

SHUT THE BOX has yet to get his head in front over fences but has shaped with promise on each of his 3 starts and looks the way to go on the back of an excellent third in a jumpers bumper at Kempton. Dual winner Est Illic is fancied to chase him home now he reverts to handicap company, with C&D winner Defi Sacre also worth a second look in refitted cheekpieces.

  1. SHUT THE BOX (IRE)
  2. EST ILLIC (IRE)
  3. DEFI SACRE (FR)
