Forecast

Gas Monkey (5/2), Channel Packet (7/2), Francophilia (7/1), The Night King (8/1), Gates Pass (10/1), Global Wonder (10/1), Regular Income (12/1), King Oswald (12/1), Rubensian (12/1), Jamaican Jill (16/1), Bayston Hill (16/1), Apache Blaze (20/1), Laqab (25/1), The Jean Genie (33/1), Taraayef (33/1), Club Tropicana (66/1)

Verdict
Rubensian is undoubtedly the best handicapped horse in this but he has gone 16 races without a win and looks like he needs a lot to go his way. Bayston Hill and Apache Blaze are on winnable marks and the former's yard are in better shape. Laqab and Channel Packet are other possibilities, but Francophilia is disappointing. GAS MONKEY faced a difficult task last time behind a progressive rival when out of the weights. This looks a lot easier and he can gain reward for his admirable consistency.
