Forecast

Driving Force (1/1), Ajyaall (11/8), Dollar Bid (5/1), Rainbird (28/1), Cooder (33/1), Song Of Beauty (100/1), Henley Park (100/1), Budanova (125/1), Drakey Boy (250/1), Kiwi Royale (250/1)

Verdict

AJYAALL was unlucky (reared leaving stalls) not to follow up his debut success here last month and is worth another chance. Kempton maiden winner Driving Force is the obvious danger, whilst Dollar Bid could also play a part.

  1. AJYAALL (FR)
  2. DRIVING FORCE
  3. DOLLAR BID
