Forecast

Silvestris (9/4), Baba Reza (3/1), Marks Bear (7/2), Illustrator (5/1), Absolute Scenes (13/2), George Scott (13/2), Mighty Power (8/1), Desert Vision (9/1), Hiroshi (33/1), Madad (33/1), Hell Of A Year (200/1)

Verdict

SILVESTRIS put his experience to good use when runner-up a similar event at York just under a fortnight ago, unlucky to be nailed on the line by a useful prospect. He's been most consistent, and can gain a deserved first victory if taking to the polytrack surface. Marks Bear looks the main danger on paper having improved on his debut form at Goodwood 11 days ago, ahead of recent-winner Baba Reza.
