Forecast

Mercian Prince (7/2), Atirelarigo (5/1), Marcilhac (11/2), Mystifiable (15/2), Morning Reggie (8/1), Gores Island (9/1), Daveron (9/1), All Together (14/1), Ballycoe (16/1), Sergeant Mattie (25/1), Speredek (33/1), King Of The Wolds (40/1), Fort Smith (50/1), Kingston (100/1)

Verdict

Most of these have questions to answer and marginal preference is for MORNING REGGIE who showed guts to win here last season and who can be forgiven his subsequent efforts. Off a good mark and with favourable conditions he is taken to beat Marcilhac who is probably better than he has shown so far. His yard are hitting form at a time of the year when historically they have done well. Mercian Prince represents an in form yard and despite a hefty rise in the weights he looks to have the improvement in him to run a big race here. 1. Morning Reggie 2. Marcilhac 3. Mercian Prince
