Forecast

Tamarillo Grove (9/2), Decoy (11/2), Frozen Over (5/1), Grey Blue (5/1), Amuse Me (6/1), Macarthur (15/2), Dreambrook Lady (8/1), Wester Ross (16/1), Minneapolis (20/1)

Verdict

Grey Blue looked poised to open his account at Worcester last month under Nico de Boinville but threw in the towel when challenged and looks one to be wary of. GRACCHUS, on the other hand, found plenty when scoring on fast ground at Ffos Las last month. He has a 6lb higher mark to overcome here but could be up to the task. Last year's winner Tamarillo Grove has 7lb more to carry but another course and distance winner, Lyssio, should strip fitter for his fifth at Stratford and Frozen Over had been knocking on the door prior to his latest fifth at Chepstow. Amuse Me can't get much lower in the weights but Decoy appears to have lost the plot.
