Forecast

Summer Blossom (2/1), Haats Off (7/2), Pink Iceburg (4/1), Raheeb (9/2), Deptford Mick (20/1), Tomahawk Ridge (25/1), King of The Ring (28/1), Glamorous Crescent (80/1), Messua (100/1), Sister's Act (100/1), Little Anxious (150/1)

Verdict
In a race lacking any depth it can be relied upon that Summer Blossom will run her race again but she's proving hard to win with and it's likely again that at least one rival will improve past her. The rain that has already arrived suits HAATS OFF and any more will really play into the hands of a filly who has real potential on soft surfaces. She's closely matched with Pink Iceburg who likewise has been highly-tried and remains open to plenty of improvement. Raheeb is an obvious danger for powerful connections on debut.
