Forecasts

Module (11/4), Barrakilla (9/2), Silver Roque (6/1), Wells De Lune (7/1), Never Complain (8/1), Right Of Reply (10/1), Dabinett Moon (10/1), Numbercruncher (12/1), Martha's Benefit (16/1), Hindon Road (25/1), Alfstar (33/1), Clues And Arrows (33/1), Swift Escape (50/1), Indigo Island (50/1), Curragh Hall (50/1)

Verdict

Several of these stand out as the likely leading contenders, but it is not an easy race to call, with Module and Barrakilla among those who could win it if fit and firing after lengthy absences. Wells De Lune is another with ability but whose better form has been on better ground, while Right Of Reply might have a squeak if the recent wind surgery has proved beneficial. However, SILVER ROQUE has proved his well being recently and has been dominating in point-to-points, so may be able to make a winning return in this sphere.
  1. Silver Roque
  2. Module
