Forecasts

Common Practice (3/1), Tudor City (11/2), Nectarine (11/2), Auckland (13/2), Impero (15/2), Alma Libre (9/1), Irish Lullaby (10/1), Global Energy (10/1), Razdan (11/1), Na Caith Tobac (16/1), Folly Beach (16/1), Arctic Blaze (18/1), Tooreen Angel (25/1), Sequoiaspirit (28/1), Dammit (33/1), Magnetic North (33/1), S'all Good Man (33/1), Scott Lang (40/1), Ideal Pal (40/1), Turkestan (50/1), Bringsty (66/1), Nevendon (150/1), Delta Dawn (150/1)

Verdict

COMMON PRACTICE remains with potential and this markedly longer trip should suit him, so he's worth chancing if the market speaks in his favour. Auckland is respected on the back of a creditable effort and the in-form Alma Libre should be on the premises once again.
