Forecasts

Bay Hill (4/1), Scotch Quay (6/1), Musical Ava (8/1), Neddyvaughan (10/1), Lady Of The Sea (10/1), Jazz Ranger (10/1), Rock On Lilly (12/1), Tintown Robin (12/1), Simiel (12/1), Dundeedy Lad (12/1), Loupgarou (14/1), Black Ice (14/1), Kentucky Lass (20/1), Accordion Twilight (20/1), The Jam Man (25/1)

Verdict

Musical Ava is better than her form figures suggest and usually runs to a level that would be good enough to land this. However, there may be more to come from SCOTCH QUAY who produced a career best last time and is now 3lb lower in the weights. Course specialist Tintown Robin and Rock On Lily are other possibilities, whilst a market move for Neddyvaughan would make him one to fear.
  1. Scotch Quay
  2. Musical Ava
  3. Tintown Robin
