Forecast

Song Of The Sky (11/4), Lizard Point (7/2), Lace Bonnet (5/1), Stormy Air (8/1), Capital Fund (12/1), Constable Buckley (12/1), Northern Sky (14/1), Last Garrison (14/1), Wat Tyler (14/1), Sindirana Queen (16/1), Bay Hill (16/1), Pillard (20/1), Alfred Wegener (25/1), Lady Magdala (25/1), Asian Wing (25/1), Vocal Activity (25/1), Safaruk (25/1), Desert Dancer (28/1), Almontaser (33/1)

Verdict
The manner in which SONG OF THE SKY made up ground late on to score at Cork recently was eye-catching. This is tougher on the revised terms but he was going away at the line and might well prove up to it. Lace Bonnet held on gamely for the minor money in that race and has scope for doing better on just a fifth career start. Last year's winner Bay Hill cannot be discounted on favourable terms while Pillard and Lizard Point are others to be considered.
