Forecast

Highlight Reel (10/3), Ode To Autumn (10/3), Talaaqy (4/1), Swiss Knight (5/1), Starboy (7/1), Vitamin (7/1), Maksab (15/2), Citron Major (9/1), Etefaaq (22/1)

Verdict
Swiss Knight bombed on his last start and while the market will be interesting on his attempt to put the disappointing run behind him, he remains hard to weigh up. It may be safer to stick with the rapidly improving STARBOY who is moving very much in the right direction and is proving hard for the handicapper to catch up with. Highlight Reel offers each-way hope for a stable going well while Talaaqy rates the main danger with further improvement expected back at this specialist trip.
