Forecast

Mulsanne Chase (5/2), Sussex Girl (9/2), Archimento (5/1), Iconic Belle (8/1), It's How We Roll (9/1), Ashazuri (10/1), Zephyros (12/1), Stringybark Creek (14/1), Officer Drivel (20/1), Junoesque (20/1), Austin Friars (40/1)

Verdict
Stringybark Creek will be hoping for a better run through the race than he got last time and there still looks to be some life in him off this mark if he does. Sussex Girl has shown she can handle this course in the past but might just need the run while it’s hard to ignore and Mick Channon runner at the moment given the form of the yard although Iconic Belle has yet to win a race. ZEPHYROS has struck up a good relationship with today’s rider Poppy Bridgewater and he looks to have a good chance in this off top weight. Officer Drivel and Mulsanne Chase are two others to throw into the mix with the former needing to settle better and the latter looking to improve for a stable upgrade.
  1. Zephyros
  2. Stringybark Creek
  3. Sussex Girl
