Forecast

Boy In The Bar (4/1), Parnassian (9/2), The Establishment (7/1), Akbar Shah (8/1), Nick Vedder (8/1), Mullionheir (10/1), Blazed (14/1), Moon Song (16/1), Shepherd's Purse (16/1), Daschas (20/1), Nezar (20/1), Firmdecisions (20/1), Quick Breath (20/1), Mr Orange (20/1), Rockies Spirit (20/1), Big Lachie (33/1), Madrinho (33/1), Field of Vision (33/1), Bounty Pursuit (50/1), Englishman (50/1)

Verdict
A wide-open contest this but the safest bet looks to be PARNASSIAN who lost a race in the stewards room at Windsor on Monday night. Had he retained the race he would have had a 6lb penalty and in any case the handicapper will no doubt add weight on so this is a good opportunity before such re-evaluation. Last year's winner Millionheir is drawn next door and the champion jockey takes over in the saddle as he did for last year's success off the same mark. On the opposite side of the track Mr Orange and 2016 winner Boy In The Bar are the most appealing.
  1. Parnassian
  2. Mullionheir
  3. Mr Orange
