Forecasts

First Class Return (8/11), As You Like (5/1), William Of Orange (15/2), Antony (9/1), Manwell (16/1), Primal Focus (18/1), Mr Mafia (22/1)

Verdict

FIRST CLASS RETURN is now 16 lb higher than for the first of his two wide-margin C&D victories last month, but he's clearly at the top of his game and is taken to complete the hat-trick. The one for the forecast could be Manwell, who surely would've gone close had he not ran out at Haydock recently. As You Like will appreciate the drying ground and is also considered off a reduced mark.
