Betting

Forecast

Empress Ali (3/1), Star of Rory (4/1), Carnageo (9/2), Dance King (7/1), Royal Shaheen (7/1), Indian Chief (7/1), Andok (9/1), La Casa Tarifa (40/1)

Verdict
Quite a number of very likeable horses in the line up, but many are now handicapped up to their very best and need to produce more seeking further success. These include Empress Ali, Carnageo and Indian Chief. However, conversely, a 5lb penalty for ROYAL SHAHEEN looks insignificant on the strength of last week's smooth C&D success. The Whillans family generally know exactly how to strike when the iron is hot, and with conditions ideal, this former German racer rates as a most confident selection.
  1. Royal Shaheen
  2. Star of Rory
  3. Dance King
