Forecast

Pythagoras (13/8), Recovery Run (16/5), A Boy Named Ivy (13/2), Heights Of Abraham (8/1), Intello Boy (8/1), Longlai (11/1), Diamond Haze (14/1)

Verdict

PYTHAGORAS has been notably strong at the finish for both wins, proving his opening mark to be all wrong at Ripon 18 days ago. The assessor has reacted with a 12 lb rise, but that may well be within his compass. This is a tightly-knit nursery, with Recovery Run and Longlai feared most.

  1. PYTHAGORAS (IRE)
  2. RECOVERY RUN
  3. LONGLAI (FR)
