Betting

Purgatory (7/2) Fair Power (4/1) Rose Grey (4/1) Tangramm (7/1) Precision Storm (8/1) Roca Magica (10/1) Jeddeyd (12/1) Redshank (12/1) Roman Stone (22/1) Dreaming Of Paris (22/1) Hurricane Ali (25/1) Come On My Son (33/1)

Verdict

ROSE GREY is still relatively unexposed and she can get off the mark at the fifth time of asking, off a workable-looking mark. Tangramm won here earlier in the month and should go close once again if in the same form. Purgatory is relatively consistent and makes some each-way appeal.
