Forecast

Shore Step (9/2), Gopsies Daughter (11/2), Lost Treasure (6/1), Miss Power (8/1), Maymine (9/1), Kindly (10/1), Verhoyen (10/1), Fille Du Septembre (12/1), Early Call (12/1), Dandyman Port (16/1), Amanaat (20/1), Haqeeba (20/1), Plough Boy (20/1), Castrogiovanni (20/1), Lapilli (33/1)

Verdict

LOST TREASURE did well to win on his re-appearance and this Ballydoyle three-year-old is open to plenty of improvement now in just his third start. The drop to 5f isn't ideal but he can overcome it with a strong pace likely. Gopsies Daughter has to be respected and this C&D hat-trick seeker is in fantastic form. Shore Step has been running really well over further all the while looking like he might enjoy a drop to this trip so he too looks a leading candidate.
  1. Lost Treasure
  2. Gopsies Daughter
  3. Shore Step
