Forecast

Just Fine (7/4), Top Brass (10/3), Siskany (4/1), Castlebar (13/2), Marine (12/1), War Thunder (12/1), Forever Forward (18/1), Military Mission (33/1), Landing System (40/1), Parachute (50/1), Aljaryaal (50/1), Night Eagle (150/1)

Verdict

The Lingfield race JUST FINE finished fourth in on debut last month has received several subsequent boosts and this regally-owned Sea The Stars colt rates a sure-fire improver, particularly now running over 1m. He gets the vote, for all Godolphin are responsible for a couple of very likely newcomers in Siskany and Castlebar.

  1. JUST FINE (IRE)
  2. SISKANY
  3. CASTLEBAR (IRE)
