Forecast

Redgrave (11/4), Vive La Difference (4/1), Mickey (9/2), Penwortham (5/1), Mr Top Hat (7/1), Viscount Loftus (12/1), De Bruyne Horse (14/1), Dark Intention (20/1), Hayadh (20/1), Misty Birnam (25/1), Pastoral Player (33/1), Tadaawol (33/1)

Verdict

A tough race featuring three last-time out winners, and the luckless top-weight Mickey, so not the sort of platform for offering strong opinions. VISCOUNT LOFTUS bolted up at Musselburgh last week, and whilst it's difficult to pin-point exactly what generated that vastly improved display, he should prove competitive from a low draw under a perfectly fair 6lb rise. Strictly speaking Penwortham has the beating of the selection on previous C&D form, and he enters the equation from stall 1, whilst Hayadh is also fully capable of going close from a reduced mark (5lb lower than when runner-up at Wetherby in May) if he truly fancies it.
  1. Viscount Loftus
  2. Mickey
  3. Hayadh
