Forecast

Always Tipsy (15/8), Darwins Fox (11/4), Decade Player (3/1), Top Cat Henry (6/1), Havana Jack (25/1), Sposalizio (28/1), Another Dark Rum (33/1), Whichwaytobougie (66/1)

Verdict
Darwins Fox should have the ability to comfortably see off these rivals on these terms if able to reproduce a chunk of the class that he showed in Ireland for Henry De Bromhead. However, DECADE PLAYER is the most likely danger and is worth chancing at the forecast odds, having been progressive during the latter part of last spring, he should be cherry ripe for this race after a recent pipe opener over 3m at Cottenham. He promises to be dangerous if allowed his way up front and assuming that he doesn't get involved in a battle for the lead with Sposalizio. 1. Decade Player 2. Darwins Fox 3. Always Tipsy
