Betting

Forecast

Eadbhard (7/2), Stormy Tale (4/1), Dandy Sue (6/1), Danehill Quest (13/2), Cantstoptherock (7/1), Bracebridge Hall (8/1), Mojambo (12/1), Taylor Velvet (16/1), March Fifteen (20/1), Blue Petal (25/1), Capitalist Queen (33/1)

Verdict

EABDHARD has shaped as if this step up in trip would suit on both outings so far this season and Michael Grassick's charge can take this three-year-old handicap having finished fourth off this mark over the minimum distance last time. Stormy Tale recorded her best effort so far when finishing runner-up last time out and while this drop in trip isn't certain to suit she looks capable of making the frame once more while Dandy Sue should appreciate this distance following a decent effort last time.
