Forecast

Desert Dream (7/2), Young John (5/1), Mr Strutter (8/1), Roaring Forties (8/1), Eponina (10/1), Oswald (10/1), Canford's Joy (10/1), La Isla Bonita (12/1), Suzi's Connoisseur (14/1), Ballymount (16/1), Spinart (16/1), Singing The Blues (20/1), Wahaab (25/1), Berlios (50/1), Andalusite (50/1)

Verdict
Several in here have claims, including Roaring Forties, who arrives in decent form, Desert Dream and La Isla Bonita. However, preference is for CANFORD'S JOY, who goes well on the forecast ground and has scope for improvement now back over this trip on his second start for Amy Murphy. Mr Strutter, Young John and Oswald are others not ruled out, with Spinart and Wahaab others who can't be written off.
  1. Canford's Joy
  2. Roaring Forties
  3. La Isla Bonita
