Forecasts

Verdict

Several could fancy their chances here, with Bon Chic on the short-list, alongside Victoria Says and Baby Ticker. Beyondtemptation is not written off, but preference is for SECRET ESCAPE, who appears the pick of Donald McCain's trio on jockey bookings and has claims in first-time cheekpieces.
  1. Secret Escape
  2. Bon Chic
  3. Victoria Says
