Forecasts

Bless Him (9/4), Bahar (9/4), Highland Cradle (5/1), Mudaarab (6/1), Trenchard (8/1), Redgrave (10/1), So Happy (10/1), Free Forum (25/1), Zoffany Bay (50/1)

Verdict

The benefit of experience can help BLESS HIM to get into his stride a little quicker this evening and he can make this a good test for the rest. Mudaarab is the obvious threat in terms of purchase price ($450,000) and potential on breeding. He certainly looks the favoured option of Sir Michael Stoute's duo; but may not represent great value at the predicted cramped odds. Others for the notebook include: Trenchard, who has fared well in defeat on a couple of occasions and can find a race before too long, while So Happy comes a long way to make his racecourse bow and is noted as one of only two horses sent down from North Yorkshire by Mark Johnson
  1. Bless Him
  2. Mudaarab
  3. Trenchard
