Forecasts

Darasso (2/1), Coeur Sublime (2/1), Farclas (7/2), Forge Meadow (13/2), Rashaan (14/1), Glamorgan Duke (66/1), Cristal Icon (100/1)

Verdict

Farclas will find this easier than when taking on stablemate Apple's Jade in two of his recent runs, but he will do well to concede lumps of weight to another Gordon Elliott inmate, COEUR SUBLIME, who could be destined for better things and is unfortunate not to have a Grade 2 win under his belt already. Forge Meadow is not written off from repeating last year's win, while Darasso is another obvious potential danger.
