Forecast

Alfarris (13/2), Afaak (8/1), Appeared (8/1), Original Choice (9/1), Pivoine (9/1), Silver Line (9/1), Rainbow Rebel (10/1), Dark Red (10/1), Tuff Rock (10/1), Medrano (12/1), Thomas Cranmer (16/1), Not So Sleepy (18/1), Plutonian (20/1), Society Red (33/1), Brittanic (40/1)

Verdict
Pivoine found himself at the front too soon last time out in a messy affair but he still looks feasibly handicapped here. Several of these would benefit from any rain that arrives before Tuesday afternoon, most notably Original Choice but preference is for AFAAK after a fine effort in the Royal Hunt Cup last time; he's only 1lb higher here in a less competitive contest.
  1. Afaak
  2. Pivoine
  3. Original Choice
