Forecast

Alrightjack (6/4), I K Brunel (11/4), House Island (7/2), Hymn And A Prayer (6/1), Sign Of War (7/1), Milkwood (7/1), On The Slopes (12/1), Moromac (25/1), French Piece (28/1), Corruption (50/1)

Verdict
As ever the market will be informative, and although those with form have shown enough to win a race, it's the unraced pair of SIGN OF WAR and I K Brunel that make the most appeal. Both are bred to be useful and choosing between the pair isn't easy, but as long as the ground stays good then Sign Of War may just have a bit more speed. Hymnandaprayer and Alrightjack can fight it out for the minor medal.
  1. Sign Of War
  2. I K Brunel
  3. Alrightjack
