Forecast

Playa Blanca (7/2), Marmalade N Toast (7/2), Scorpion Black (4/1), Viscount Wilson (7/1), Miss Zizi (12/1), Dream Of Words (14/1), Premier League (14/1), Downtown Diva (16/1), Mojambo (20/1), Cantstoptherock (20/1), Bonnie Baugh (20/1), Feisty Katerina (25/1), Venus Starr (33/1), Flamin Audi (33/1), Hey Pretty (33/1), La Baule (40/1), Greengage (50/1)

Verdict
This looks wide open and cases can be made for a few. MARMALADE N TOAST looks the type to keep improving this year and is taken to follow up his recent Cork victory. Market support for the unexposed Viscount Wilson would need to be heeded, and the new headgear might eke out a bit more improvement from Scorpion Black. At a bigger price, Flamin Audi is worth a second look.
