Forecast

Conscious (5/1), Toronado Queen (5/1), Ajax Tavern (6/1), Starry Eyes (15/2), Earth And Sky (9/1), Delicate Kiss (11/1), Elmejor (12/1), The Met (12/1), Verify (12/1), Catch My Breath (12/1), Reine De Vitesse (16/1), Mr Scaramanga (25/1), Love Destiny (25/1), Oslo (25/1), Transition (50/1)

Verdict

It's been a luckless campaign for EARTH AND SKY so far and she'll likely have to be dropped in from stall 13, but she's clearly on a mark she can exploit so is worth siding with in what is admittedly a very competitive race. Conscious and Toronado Queen both chase a hat-trick and head the list of dangers.

  1. EARTH AND SKY (USA)
  2. CONSCIOUS
  3. TORONADO QUEEN (IRE)
