Forecast

Second Step (9/2), Scarlet Dragon (6/1), Desert Encounter (13/2), My Dream Boat (13/2), Fabricate (7/1), Architecture (9/1), Secret Number (10/1), Dylan Mouth (10/1), Across The Stars (12/1), Wingingit (25/1), What About Carlo (25/1)

Verdict
David Simcock has won the last two renewals of this contest and Desert Encounter gives him a good chance of landing the hat-trick. The five-year-old has kept some good company this campaign and he's sure to appreciate the drop in class. However, SECOND STEP was impressive last time out at Windsor and he looks capable of taking this step up in class in his stride. Architecture shouldn't be ruled out for the Hugo Palmer stable after some fine efforts last year but the near year-long absence is a little off-putting.
  1. Second Step
  2. Desert Encounter
  3. Architecture
