Forecast

Duke Of Waspington (5/4), The Plan Man (7/2), Easy Boy (7/2), Universal Focus (11/1), Jackmel (14/1), Specific Gravity (14/1), Solar Heat (20/1), Foxy Lass (20/1), Authorative (33/1), Coolfighter (33/1), Paddytheirishman (50/1), Tortueuse (50/1)

Verdict
A few of these have patchy records and most give away fitness advantages to rivals who probably just need to run to their current ability in order to score. Duke Of Waspington has been looking in need of a greater test and it is possible the front-running tactics employed last time could make a difference if repeated over this longer trip. However, that prospect ,and that of a few of the other proven stayers ensuring a good gallop, may set this up nicely for the in-form EASY BOY who goes well for today's rider and needs to be produced off the pace. Specific Gravity returns to the trip which brought him success last month and he looks capable of making the frame at least.
