Forecast

Midnight Folie (10/11), Chasma (9/4), Chequered View (7/1), Ann Maries Reject (16/1), Gilly Grace (20/1), The Overflow (40/1)

Verdict

Chequered View won at Fakenham on her chasing bow in between modest efforts over timber and should be in the mix. But Chasma has failed to figure in a couple of outings since landing a double earlier in the year and MIDNIGHT FOLIE is preferred. The latter rattled-up a hat-trick including a course and distance success before caught close home at Ffos Las during the week and another bold bid is expected from Tim Vaughan’s mare. Ann Maries Reject ran well for second at Worcester at a big price last time and makes more appeal than both Gilly Grace and The Overflow.
