Forecasts

Chosen Hour (9/4), Cappuccino Man (9/2), Emily Square (11/2), Railway Muice (11/2), Father Jed (6/1), Wee Small Hours (8/1), Fr Gilligansvoyge (9/1), Beeper's Ruby (14/1), Bellaney Gem (14/1), Waaheb (20/1), Rio De Cerisy (20/1), Costalita (25/1), Isharah (33/1), Semper Fidelis (33/1)

Verdict

It may be unlikely that the gutsy Father Jed can turn the tables on the Tom Mullins-trained EMILY SQUARE following the mares' 8L demolition of a 16 runner field over C&D earlier this month and looks more than capable of handling the 9lb extra burden in this contest. The hat trick seeking Chosen Hour and the Gordon Elliott-trained Rio De Cerisy on handicap debut should not be underestimated.
  1. Emily Square
  2. Chosen Hour
  3. Father Jed
