Forecasts

Simonia (11/10), Sea Story (4/1), Lady Of The Night (6/1), Cheeky Chica (13/2), Angel Moon (11/1), Brushed Up (12/1), Kestrel Valley (20/1), Pedulia Alba (20/1), Sally Can't Wait (25/1), The Imitation Game (66/1), R Bren (100/1)

Verdict

Brushed Up was a surprise winner of a similar event over C&D last month but, given that she's now penalised, the one to take out of that race is probably SEA STORY who was sent off favourite that day only to unseat early in unfortunate circumstances. Even so, with the Nicky Henderson's yard in such formidable form, it's hard to look beyond the beautifully-bred newcomer SIMONIA, a daughter of Yeats and a half-sister to the top-class Simonsig amongst others. Angel Moon looks the most interesting of the remainder.
