Forecast

Green Zone (10/3), Mitcd (9/2), Theatre Act (6/1), Sleep In First (7/1), Superefficient (8/1), Rory's Valentine (8/1), Slaney Craiglegacy (17/2), Make It Happen (17/2), Da Dou Ron Ron (9/1), Snowed In (12/1), Sierra Oscar (12/1), Sense Of Urgency (16/1), Cully Mac (66/1)

Verdict
A poor contest with much more doubt than confidence in any of the field and if conditions remain fast then it might be worth chancing DA DOU RON RON. She went to the well plenty of times in bumpers when trained in France and never won. She is also 0-3 in Britain, but she has shown form on quicker ground and this longer trip might just help get her off the mark. Green Zone has the potential to go close now back in better form, while Mitcd, Make It Happen and Rory's Valentine are other more obvious players.
