Forecast

Arbalet (4/7), Dazzle Gold (9/4), Butterfly Lily (5/1), Blue Medici (11/1), It's Never Enough (50/1), Xin Chao (50/1), Carlton Thomas (66/1), Cathie's Dream (66/1), Boudica Bay (80/1), Millie The Minx (100/1), Angel Eyes (100/1)

Verdict
Though he's had more racing than the rest of these, ARBALET was good enough to finish third in a Group 3 at Sandown in November, and now returning to novice company (having previously recorded an impressive success in a similar race), he should be very tough to beat. Recent Musselburgh winner Dazzle Gold and and Butterfly Lily can fill the places.
