Forecast

Esprit De Baileys (7/2), Zatorius (4/1), Mystic Meg (6/1), Potters Lady Jane (6/1), Nelson River (8/1), Love To Breeze (10/1), Right About Now (10/1), Spanish History (10/1), Butterfield (12/1), Reveleon (20/1), Blooriedotcom (20/1), Widnes (25/1), Ebqaa (25/1), Big Sigh (25/1), Bartholomew J (33/1)

Verdict
A wide-open handicap this but top-weight ESPRIT DE BAILEYS can overcome that burden given his thoroughly progressive nature since moving over from France earlier this year. Dangers aplenty include Potters Lady Jane who won well here last time out and Right About Now who did likewise and is very much a course specialist.
  1. Esprit De Baileys
  2. Potters Lady Jane
  3. Right About Now
