Betting

Forecast

Helovaplan (7/2), Waarif (7/2), Club Wexford (8/1), Archie (9/1), Fingal's Cave (10/1), Big Storm Coming (12/1), Parys Mountain (14/1), Music Seeker (16/1), Midnight Macchiato (16/1), Wasm (20/1), Imperial Focus (22/1), Shouranour (25/1), Dasheen (25/1), Ascot Week (25/1), Save The Bees (28/1), Thomas Cranmer (40/1)

Verdict

HELOVAPLAN ran well to finish third on seasonal debut and having won over C&D in the past the drop in trip shouldn't inconvenience Bryan Smart's charge. The selection races off the same mark as for that seasonal reappearance and he can get the better of his rivals here with Fingal's Cave taken to claim second having run well over 7f last time. Waarif finished a close fourth at Wetherby on his return from a break and he can claim third.
