Forecasts

Rock On Dandy (11/4), Commander Won (4/1), Alcander (4/1), Repare Mon (6/1), Creeping Ivy (8/1), Sharjah (8/1), Shadagann (14/1), Flannery (20/1), Paddy The Celeb (22/1), Catchy Lass (25/1), Free Code (50/1), Takeitfromalady (50/1), Rising (50/1)

Verdict

Four of these won last time and the quartet definitely make the most appeal. ROCK ON DANDY has the most compelling claims based on his back-to-back wins against horses with good recent AW records. Alcander's win is working out well so she may prove the biggest threat and has the benefit of a longer break between races than the other three running under penalties. Repare Mon is also respected and has a chance with the selection at the weights.
  1. Rock On Dandy
