Betting

Forecast

Tan (7/1), Extrasolar (7/1), Fire Diamond (15/2), Hadley (8/1), Danish Duke (10/1), Clergyman (12/1), Spirit of Zebedee (12/1), Round The Island (12/1), Melaniemillie (12/1), Mansfield (14/1), Duke Cosimo (14/1), Searanger (16/1), Cool Strutter (16/1), Sarabi (25/1), Robben Rainbow (25/1), Willsy (33/1), Barron's Lad (33/1), Sunnyside Bob (50/1), Etienne Gerard (50/1), A J Cook (66/1)

Verdict

DUKE COSIMO finished a close fifth last time and he can record his fifth win on turf in this 6f sprint handicap. The selection races off a mark 1lb higher than when winning on the AW in January and he can get the better of Searanger who was successful over C&D a week ago while the second that day Melaniemillie is taken to claim third ahead of Hadley who should appreciate the return to the sound surface forecast for this.
