Mighty Thunder (5/2), Court Dreaming (10/3), One Night In Milan (10/3), Benny's Secret (8/1), Viserion (8/1), Grand Enterprise (10/1), Desert Island Dusk (12/1), King Leon (16/1), This Thyne Jude (33/1), Ex S'elance (66/1)

Verdict
The winner of this last year Benny’s Secret is well treated and back on his last winning mark if he’s been rejuvenated by a break with Court Dreaming another to note if his handicap mark isn’t beyond him although he looks to have been lumbered with a stiff mark. Mighty Thunder has given the impression that he’s capable of better and a recent wind op could well have improved his prospects but he does need to build on his run last time. Hat-trick seeking ONE NIGHT IN MILAN who is already a C&D winner only won narrowly last time but that race came very quickly after his initial win and there may well be better to come. Desert Island Dusk looks one for a place at his best.
  1. One Night In Milan
  2. Desert Island Dusk
  3. Court Dreaming
