Forecast

Culturati (5/1), Gunmetal (5/1), Gin In The Inn (6/1), Scorching Heat (7/1), Boy In The Bar (7/1), Al Qahwa (7/1), Spring Loaded (14/1), Out Do (16/1), Go Far (16/1), Moonraker (16/1), Stellarta (33/1), New Bidder (50/1), Outer Space (66/1)

Verdict
Several of these will be lining up for the Wokingham later this month and it will be an opportunity to make notes with that event in mind. Culturati takes the eye after his layoff and he will probably be using this to add the finishing touches to his Royal Ascot preparations. Scorching Heat is feared at the foot of the handicap as are Gunmetal and Boy In The Bar. For the selection we look no further than AL QAHWA. David O'Meara's Irish import won a shade cleverly at York and his third to Gordon Lord Byron last term gives his astute trainer plenty to work on.
  1. Al Qahwa
  2. Gunmetal
  3. Scorching Heat
