Forecast

Rufus King (11/4), Dragons Tail (11/4), Joe's Spirit (5/1), Alaska (6/1), Queen Of Kalahari (7/1), City Guest (11/1), Holdenhurst (14/1)

Verdict
JOE'S SPIRIT beat Tangled at Chelmsford and that horse went close at Newmarket next time. He meets Rufus King on significantly better terms than at Beverley last time and this trip should see him to better effect. Rufus King is another who promises to be better served by this trip but he faces as tiff task at the weights. Dragon's Tail ran well in the Windsor Castle and may improve on his first attempt at this trip. City Guest was outclassed in that same event but was going the right way beforehand and he could give a good account at a decent price.
