Forecasts

Mill Race King (11/4), Real Armani (3/1), Go To Court (7/1), Casimir Du Clos (10/1), Claret Dabbler (11/1), Holme Abbey (11/1), Trumps Benefit (12/1), Iskabeg Lane (18/1), Epsom Des Mottes (20/1), Challow (22/1), Charmix (25/1), Teme Spirit (33/1), Black Kettle (40/1), Scottsdale (66/1)

Verdict

A number arrive with claims including TRUMPS BENEFIT, who produced a perfectly adequate comeback from 5 months off when third over hurdles at Newcastle in April. He looked set to score from a higher mark over fences last year and the return to this sort of trip will hold no fears. Mill Race King ran well away from heavy ground last time and is feared, along with Casimir du Clos and Real Armani.
