Forecast

Swanton Blue (5/2), Canford's Joy (7/2), Spanish Star (13/2), Your Choice (8/1), Incentive (8/1), Crosse Fire (10/1), Roundabout Magic (12/1), Seamster (12/1), Soaring Spirits (16/1), Arctic Flower (50/1)

Verdict
Seamus Cronin's claim could come in handy on SWANTON BLUE, who has gone close on his last two starts, and is best drawn of the front runners. He may have most to fear from admirable veteran Seamster, although Canford's Joy is potentially well treated if he's been revived by a move to the Amy Murphy yard, and the booking of Silvestre de Sousa gives hope on that score.
  1. Swanton Blue
  2. Seamster
