Forecast

Universal Focus (4/1), Miro (4/1), Magic Sea (4/1), Bobby Jean (5/1), Emily Square (11/2), Teqany (8/1), Dragon Girl (16/1), Molten Gold (25/1), Molly Kaye (33/1), Stadius (33/1), Hidden Diamond (66/1), Now Say Yes (66/1)

Verdict
A pretty weak affair all told, and it may be worth chancing EMILY SQUARE, who hasn't been disgraced when things haven't gone her way the last twice, and she is now 11lb lower than when third in this contest last year. Universal Focus is admirably consistent and should go well for Alyson Deniel, with Lisa O'Neill's mount Miro also worthy of respect despite some low-key efforts of late.
  1. Emily Square
  2. Universal Focus
  3. Miro
