Forecast

Lady Buttons (7/2), Expedite (4/1), King Cool (6/1), Pop Rockstar (13/2), Norse Light (13/2), Allee Bleue (7/1), Milord (7/1), Ozzy Thomas (7/1), Verygoodverygood (12/1), Orchard Boy (16/1), Maximus Maridius (16/1), Tipperairy (22/1), Kingston (25/1), Chankillo (40/1)

Verdict
Tipperairy is very interesting here after an absence, while both Pop Rockstar and Norse Light will have their supporters, though preference is for Alle Bleue. Philip Hobbs' charge does have to shoulder top weight, but he may well appreciate this weaker grade and if the handicapper had previously done his sums correctly, then he is well in here compared to his novice form. 1. Allee Bleue 2. Norse Light 3. Tipperairy
