Forecasts

Gulf Of Poets (4/1), Weekend Offender (4/1), Masham Star (5/1), Ionization (5/1), Nicholas T (5/1), Lincoln Rocks (6/1), Mutahaady (12/1), Hibou (16/1), Aardwolf (16/1), Alexandrakollontai (20/1), Highland Colori (22/1), Lat Hawill (28/1), Zoravan (66/1)

Verdict

Nicholas T and Gulf Of Poets arrive here in fine form and are proven at this level, so they are not taken on lightly. However, they will both have to improve further to win this and their presence might give us a better price about WEEKEND OFFENDER, who has been given time since a good comeback run. He remains unexposed and on a workable mark and looks the one with potential here. Ionization can't be ruled out in these conditions, while Highland Colori is very much respected from top weight.
