Betting

Forecast

Sky Vega (5/4), Magic Twist (3/1), Maximilius (5/1), Blairlogie (9/1), Ocho Grande (11/1), General Joe (20/1), Sea Voice (25/1), I'm Watching You (33/1), The Fitzpiers Lion (50/1), Viking Honour (50/1), Leo's Luckyman (50/1)

Verdict

This looks a match between SKY VEGA and Magic Twist on what we've seen to date. Mark Johnston's filly was a good second at Epsom last month on second outing and will be in the mix with further improvement to come but ready preference is for Richard Hannon's colt. The form of his Brighton third was boosted by the winner Hariboux scoring readily next time and he was just denied at Doncaster yesterday off a mark of 92. With Rossa Ryan in flying form, this represents an excellent chance to open his account. Ocho Grande drops in class and joins possible improver Maximilius in the race for minor money.
