Forecast

Victory Angel (4/1), Captain Colby (9/2), Gulliver (5/1), Jordan Sport (6/1), Barrington (13/2), Highland Acclaim (8/1), Syrian Pearl (8/1), Fang (10/1), Huntsmans Close (11/1), Rosabelle (12/1)

Verdict
Victory Angel catches the eye with Silvestre de Sousa booked to ride but he may want better ground than forecast and that tilts us towards HUNTSMANS CLOSE. His latest run suggests he is approaching his best and conditions will hold no fears. He has won and made the frame a further three times in four visits to this track and that makes him likely to reverse recent form with Highland Acclaim. Jordan Sport may get the run of the race up front and looks a good candidate to make the frame at least.
