Forecasts

Donnachies Girl (9/4), Omotesando (11/4), Hurricane Hollow (15/2), Lady Natasha (15/2), Almutamarred (8/1), Angelical (8/1), Gold Merlion (10/1), Invictus (14/1), Turnbury (20/1), Auxiliary (25/1), Up Ten Down Two (25/1)

Verdict

Gold Merlion could get an easy time of things on the front end and she's with her due to go up another 2lb when reassessed, she could be hard to peg back. However, OMOTESANDO has been in excellent form this year without getting his head in front and he looks capable of getting back in the winner's enclosure with conditions set to suit. Donnachies Girl is only up 3lb for her latest win and may be the main danger to the pair.
