Forecasts

Rebel Rebellion (9/4), Galway Jack (3/1), Toby Lerone (3/1), Penmore Mill (4/1), Grandioso (14/1), Night Alliance (25/1), Out Now (25/1), Siro Demur (33/1), Vincitore (80/1)

Verdict

Last year's winner PENMORE MILL looks to have been given an ideal preparation for his repeat bid and, granted a clear round, he can take the beating. Night Alliance is an admirable character who can make this a good test, while Rebel Rebellion has to be feared as a threat on the pick of his efforts. Similar comments apply to Galway Jack, who will appreciate this grade of contest and is one to monitor closely in the betting. Grandioso is frustrating to follow but can also be a player in this company if he is on song. 1. Penmore Mill 2. Night Alliance 3. Galway Jack
