Forecast

Dommersen (7/4), Rockwood (3/1), Thawry (6/1), Winged Spur (10/1), Restive (10/1), Seaborough (10/1), Remmy D (16/1)

Verdict
There's every likelihood that the top-weight Dommersen will be in the same form as when winning at Chelmsford 33-days ago, but it's fair to say that he's deserved a short break following a very hectic spell of racing in January. He has clashed with a couple of these rivals previously, including the maiden Thawry and the locally-trained ROCKWOOD. The selection hadn't run for a while (since September) when finishing fourth to the Sir Mark Prescott-trained Elysees Palace over C&D in early January, so on revised terms has a semblance of a chance of reversing placings with Dommersen (second) and therefore gets the speculative value-seeking nod.
