Forecast

Urban War (15/8), Solid Gold (2/1), Branston Lion (4/1), Sim Card (9/1), Ivynator (12/1), Ghostly (18/1), Northern General (150/1)

Verdict

URBAN WAR improved from his debut to score at Ripon last month, keeping on well over the longer trip considering how keen he was early on. Provided he learns to relax, he should progress further and can follow up. Branston Lion ran well when runner-up last time and he may have to settle for silver again, while Solid Gold should progress after a promsing initial effort.

  1. URBAN WAR (IRE)
  2. BRANSTON LION (IRE)
  3. SOLID GOLD
