Forecast

Compton Park (11/2), Liberty Jack (6/1), My Name Is Rio (7/1), Mehdi (8/1), Chooseday (12/1), Head Space (12/1), Dark Castle (14/1), Mississippi (14/1), Bajan Bear (16/1), Cruise Tothelimit (16/1), Tumblewind (16/1), Adam's Ale (22/1), Hadaj (22/1), Can You Conga (25/1), Rocksilla (25/1), Rodrigo De Torres (33/1), Rothesay Chancer (33/1), Sacrosanctus (40/1)

Verdict

CHOOSEDAY was only beaten a head in the Great St Wilfrid consolation sprint at Ripon last time. He beat Compton Park easily enough and will go close with a similar effort. Liberty Jack has every chance on last week's second in better company at Ffos Las while Adam's Ale also has strong claims after finishing runner-up over 5f at Ripon. Bajan Bear remains in fine form but is upped in class for this. A case can also be made for the likes of My Name Is Rio, Mississippi, Tumblewind and Mehdi on their best form.
