Forecast

Tavener (5/2), Falcao (3/1), Spirit Of Zebedee (7/1), Letmestopyouthere (7/1), Cuban Spirit (8/1), Daring Guest (10/1), Billyoakes (10/1), Holdenhurst (12/1), Holy Tiber (12/1), Royal Mezyan (14/1), Little Miss Daisy (25/1), Knockout Blow (40/1)

Verdict
SPIRIT OF ZEBEDEE remains well-handicapped following his latest win, is well drawn to race on the pace and is proving reliable at this level. Tavener deserves another win based on his recent runs and is another proving consistent while Cuban Spirit could easily leave his latest effort behind and is open to more progress than his rivals.
  1. Spirit Of Zebedee
  2. Tavener
  3. Cuban Spirit
