Forecast

Crystal Ocean (9/4), Permian (6/1), Best Solution (13/2), Sir John Lavery (8/1), Salouen (9/1), Khalidi (10/1), Best Of Days (10/1), Call To Mind (14/1), Wolf Country (20/1), Frankuus (22/1), Raheen House (25/1), Glencadam Glory (25/1), Intern (25/1)

Verdict
Things didn't pan out for PERMIAN in the Derby but he paid the price for being poorly positioned and he ought to give a better account here. Best Solution arrives here with a similar story and he should continue to progress while Salouen is another to come out of the race with a hard luck story having been hampered in the run and should do better here.
  1. Permian
  2. Best Solution
  3. Salouen
