Forecast

Neachells Bridge (9/2), Teescomponents Lad (6/1), Bordeaux Bill (6/1), Becky The Thatcher (6/1), Miss Spent (15/2), Dubai Angel (10/1), Quest For Life (11/1), Blottos (12/1), Chicoria (12/1), The Vocalist (12/1), Presence Felt (14/1), Sky Khan (20/1), Pure Science (20/1), Sakhee's City (33/1), Tyrell (50/1)

Verdict
Another race that should be hotly contested, with top weight Sakhee's City respected, the improving Neachells Bridge a potential player if handling the ground and similar comments applying to Miss Spent. Cases can be made for Blottos, Becky The Thatcher and Teescomponents Lad, but it could pay to side with bottom weight CHICORIA, who should be better for his reappearance and may be able to handle this grade, with conditions to suit.
  1. Chicoria
  2. Neachells Bridge
  3. Miss Spent
