Forecast

Dostal Phil (9/4), Antunes (4/1), Tegerek (6/1), Laughing Luis (10/1), Precious Bounty (10/1), Megalodon (12/1), Unsafe Conduct (14/1), Manofthemoment (16/1), Shanty Alley (20/1), Defi Sacre (25/1), Ravenous (25/1), West Drive (33/1), Rock Steady (33/1)

Verdict
A fiendishly difficult race this with compelling evidence hard to find. DOSTAL PHIL has disappointed so far but there is almost certainly ability yet un-shown if only he will settle better. After a break it's hoped that issue can now be addressed. Rock Steady is rated 94 on the flat so should be a whole lot better than we've seen so far and he is of interest now sent handicapping. Leicester winner Laughing Luis is another of the more likely sorts.
  1. Dostal Phil
  2. Rock Steady
  3. Laughing Luis
