Forecast

American (2/1), Rock The Kasbah (6/1), Crosspark (6/1), Delgany Demon (13/2), Pougne Bobbi (8/1), Newtown Lad (9/1), Hainan (10/1), Wild West Wind (10/1), Baywing (10/1), Mustmeetalady (14/1), Tanit River (28/1)

Verdict
American is a progressive type that will be hard to beat, even though he has a 5lb higher mark to contend with this time around. However, a chance is taken on HAINAN, who readily brushed aside Crosspark when they last met and has scope for further improvement back over a trip that suits. Baywing will also be a threat, which would be increased if the ground were to deteriorate. Pougne Bobbi is another worth a mention as one that is likely to improve over this more demanding test of stamina.
