Forecast

Nearly Caught (7/4), Ben Vrackie (11/4), Sheikhzayedroad (3/1), St Michel (5/1), Sevenna Star (6/1), Saracen Knight (8/1), The Tartan Spartan (20/1)

Verdict
Joh Gosden has won four of the last six renewals of this including with a three-year-old last season so his pair have to be given serious respect. SEVENNA STAR appears the first pick and this classic trial winner could be ideally suited by a staying test now and will certainly find this a few notches below the red-hot contests he's been in the last twice. Sheikhzayedroad isn't getting any younger but has easily the best CV available here and ran better latest so he has to be considered. Nearly Caught is always competitive at this sort of level and distance.
  1. Sevenna Star
  2. Sheikhzayedroad
  3. Nearly Caught
