Forecasts

Star Maker (7/4), Randalls Ur Poet (15/8), Lady In Lavender (4/1), Vanderbilt (8/1), Viking Hoard (12/1), Over To Joes (20/1), Still Alive (25/1), Petite Gina (33/1), Classical Rock (33/1), Alfred Wegener (33/1), Bing Bang Bank (40/1), Permanent (66/1), Simtana Star (66/1), Bright Lass (100/1)

Verdict

Classical Rock and Vanderbilt could be the two to lead the field in the early stages of the opening contest with Permanent and Randalls Ur Poet possibly in behind the leaders. The Charles Byrnes stable have a solid record at this meeting in the last four years and Viking Howard can give the selection STAR MAKER the most to think about as he aims to build on promising debut for stable.
