Forecast

Bloody Mary (7/4), London Prize (4/1), Chesterfield (9/2), Melodic Rendezvous (7/1), Sumkindofking (7/1), Golden Birthday (8/1), Montbazon (17/2), Remiluc (9/1), Canton Prince (12/1), Doubly Clever (14/1), Loup De Louve (14/1), Curious Carlos (14/1)

Verdict
The one's who look set to head the market (Bloody Mary and London Prize) both have question marks over them so it may be worth looking for some value elsewhere in the field. DOUBLY CLEVER rattled off a hat-trick two years back and shaped with some promise at Exeter two starts ago. He looks well-handicapped on his best form and he is taken to bounce back. Chesterfield hasn't shown much in two starts since an absence but it's too early to be writing him off and Loup De Louve is a fascinating contender and he should have learned plenty from his UK debut. He represents the Gary Moore team who are in flying form of late.
