Forecasts

Top Tug (7/2), Soghan (4/1), Koeman (4/1), Melinoe (9/2), Dannyday (7/1), Seafarer (8/1), Faithful Mount (17/2), Platitude (20/1), Arab Moon (20/1)

Verdict

The forecast of the ground being on the soft is detrimental to many in this. There is every likelihood of this being a true test with Faithful Mount in to set the pace, so the vote has to go to MELINOE. Sir Mark Prescott's daughter of Sea The Stars has her optimum trip and ground plus her comeback looks all the better given the race developed against her. Seafarer is another who will not mind the conditions and a sensible pace will help him settle. Last year's winner Top Tug, the consistent Koeman and Soghan will be hoping the ground dries out, whilst Arab Moon would be dangerous if finally reproducing his AW form on turf.
  1. Melinoe
  2. Seafarer
  3. Koeman
