Forecast

Shaheen (15/8), Equitant (2/1), Tommy G (7/2), Star Cracker (9/1), Danish Duke (14/1), Brendan (14/1), Gnaad (16/1), House Of Cards (50/1)

Verdict
Best to concentrate solely upon the Yorkshire raiders Shaheen and EQUITANT. John Quinn has enjoyed a stellar week with a Royal Ascot winner and his three-year-old Shaheen must be competitive despite a 4lb rise for his recent narrow Pontefract win. He goes well for Jason Hart, and this race won't take much winning. That said; the Richard Fahey-trained runner Equitant is just preferred with blinkers enlisted in order to thwart a winless spell which goes back to his racecourse debut in August 2017.
  1. Equitant
  2. Shaheen
  3. Star Cracker
