Forecasts

Zafar (11/10), Tarada (9/4), Ashutor (5/1), Shannon Hill (12/1), Grange Ranger (12/1), Black Centaur (28/1), Colonel Keating (33/1), Helford River (33/1), Master Majic (40/1), Miss Molly Mae (50/1), Free Travel (125/1), Long River Dancer (125/1), Eos (200/1), Royal Concorde (200/1)

Verdict

Zafar has an official rating of 127 which suggests he is the one to beat in receipt of the allowances, but there are questions over the value of his latest run and the current form of the stable. Tarada split a useful pair at Chepstow and the form has been franked since, but preference is for Cheltenham entry ASHUTOR who will be more at home over this longer trip having failed to justify favouritism on his Ludlow debut.
