Forecast

More Kudos (5/2), Oor Jock (3/1), Red All Star (5/1), Strategic Heights (11/2), Your Pal Tal (8/1), Arlecchino's Rock (11/1), Jan Steen (20/1), Little Kodi (20/1), Sartori (25/1), Take A Drop (25/1), Molans Mare (33/1), Nine Carat (33/1), Scobias (50/1), Onchu (50/1), Arterial (50/1)

Verdict
Oor Jock is a likeable sort but he finds winning tough and while he's likely to be on the premises again, he's easy enough to go by for win purposes. The same could be said of RED ALL STAR to a degree but he's had fewer runs on this surface. He's on a nice mark based on his pre-Christmas efforts over this trip and can take advantage. Strategic Heights must enter calculations on form and with a likeable jockey booking to aid his cause while More Kudos is also suited by the return to 6f – a comment that also applies to Arlecchino's Rock, a UK winner at this trip on artificial surface back in October. 1. Red All Star 2. More Kudos 3. Oor Jock
