Forecast

Nobly Born (5/2), Golden Apollo (4/1), Lualiwa (9/2), Private Matter (8/1), Goodwood Crusader (9/1), Bohemian Flame (11/1), Turanga Leela (12/1), Megan Lily (14/1), Belle Meade (14/1), Smokey Lane (20/1), Poet's Society (20/1), Repton (25/1)

Verdict
With no obvious pace amongst the confirmed runners Kevin Ryan's LUALIWA is taken to make all the running dropping back to 6f for the first time this season. The selection has won his last two starts and can complete the hat-trick to give the Rest Of The World team a winner here. Nobly Born ran well in a highly competitive contest at Newmarket last time and can claim second off the same mark here while Golden Apollo who had been in good form prior to disappointing last time out can take third.
  1. Lualiwa
  2. Nobly Born
  3. Golden Apollo
