Forecast

Unblinking (3/1), Inaminna (4/1), Fenlons Court (11/2), Champagne Chaser (9/1), Cropley (9/1), At First Light (10/1), Purple 'n Gold (10/1), Mortens Leam (10/1), De Bene Esse (12/1), Braw Angus (12/1), Red Admirable (12/1), Midnight Request (14/1), Justification (14/1), King's Reste (16/1), Amour D'Or (20/1), Searching (25/1), Coeur De Brume (33/1)

Verdict
There are few solid contenders here but CHAMPAGNE CHASER is only 2lb above his last winning mark, is back to his best trip and is fresher than most. Amour D'or will be dangerous if staying this longer trip and reproducing his last run on this quicker surface. Cropley and Fenlon's Court have each-way possibilities.
  1. Champagne Chaser
  2. Amour D'or
  3. Fenlons Court
