Forecasts

Onemorefortheroad (11/8), Billy Ray (11/2), Kloud Gate (6/1), Hunting Percival (10/1), Just Call Me Al (10/1), Cafe Pushkin (10/1), Midnight Glance (11/1), Your Band (16/1), Duc De Bourbon (18/1), Fricka (25/1), Raven Court (33/1)

Verdict

A few of these offer potential, not least ONEMOREFORTHEROAD who was an emphatic winner on his handicap bow at Huntingdon and can make light of a 7 lb penalty on just his fourth go over hurdles. Billy Ray showed the benefit of a wind op when runner-up at Wetherby last time so is feared most with that form looking strong. Duc de Bourbon and Hunting Percival are worth considering too.
