Forecasts

Lucca (7/2), Cassells Rock (13/2), Touch Of Gold (7/1), Bottleofsmoke (7/1), Tara Dylan (8/1), Mr Fiftyone (9/1), Nonetheless (9/1), Caridadi (11/1), Emperor Waltz (12/1), Prospectus (14/1), Long Call (20/1), Nelson Road (22/1), Hudson's Bay (28/1), Nightly Wailing (33/1), Inis Meain (33/1)

Verdict

Some big price runners could set the early pace here with Lucca, Mr Fiftyone and possibly Nonetheless, vying for the lead. Bottleofsmoke, 10 lb higher than last win and does tend to place in big fields and Touch Of Gold can place, but preference is for CASSELLS ROCK, won going away last time out and the gelding is two from seven on yielding ground.
  1. Cassells Rock
  2. Touch Of Gold
  3. Bottleofsmoke
