Forecast

Empire State (3/1), Georgeville (9/2), Albuquerque (6/1), Loughmore (13/2), Merricourt (13/2), Antilles (7/1), Self Rule (7/1), Cuban Hope (16/1), Snow Ocean (16/1), Harliston Tower (25/1), Pocotaligo (25/1), Deputy Sheriff (33/1), Doi Suthep (33/1), Rememberthetitans (33/1), Donoch (66/1), Airgead (100/1), Act Of Magic (100/1), Dom's Angel (150/1), Secret Dandy (150/1)

Verdict
A competitive looking heat in which Aidan O'Brien has a strong hand. EMPIRE STATE put up a much improved performance last time and he makes most appeal with experience on his side. Merricourt ran with credit on debut and should progress while Georgeville is an interesting debutante to keep an eye on in the market.
  1. Empire State
  2. Merricourt
  3. Georgeville
