Forecast

Weekender (13/8), Okool (5/1), Galactic Prince (5/1), Daphne (8/1), Withhold (8/1), Seafarer (12/1), You're Hired (16/1), Paris Protocol (20/1), Croquembouche (33/1), Sea Fox (40/1), Sunblazer (40/1), Barye (50/1)

Verdict
WEEKENDER can register his third win by taking this 1m4f handicap on his first attempt at the trip. The selection hails from the powerful John Gosden stable and stayed on well when winning over 1m2f last time out. The selection is likely to have the ground to suit today and can see off seasonal debutant Daphne who ended last season in good form while Okool, a winner when last in action a month ago can claim third off his revised mark.
