Forecast

Major Partnership (5/2), Lethal Lunch (7/2), Blackheath (15/2), Documenting (8/1), Mutafani (9/1), Almufti (10/1), War Glory (12/1), Gifted Master (16/1), Above The Rest (16/1), Three Saints Bay (16/1), Revich (20/1), Silent Echo (25/1), Silent Attack (25/1), Charles Molson (33/1)

Verdict

SILENT ECHO showed good form on turf earlier this year and he can make a winning return from a break and to the AW with victory in this competitive handicap. The selection should appreciate this step up in trip and he can get the better of War Glory who is chasing a double having won at Chelmsford on his most recent outing. Third place can go to Lethal Lunch who has won twice on the AW this campaign.
  1. Silent Echo
