Forecast

Thosedaysaregone (2/1), Simply A Legend (7/2), Dubai Angel (6/1), Theatrebar (15/2), Cornborough (8/1), Becky The Thatcher (10/1), Golden Jeffrey (14/1), Desert Island Dusk (22/1)

Verdict
The fact that Alan King has persevered with SIMPLY A LEGEND is a solid indication that the gelding is far from a lost cause despite him having raced only once in the last three years. The ten-year-old is weighted to reverse the form course form with Thosedaysaregone and edges preference on this occasion. Golden Jeffrey enjoyed his racing last year and has solid enough form to merit consideration for a place in the frame. Desert Island Dusk has done well since a wind operation and is also entitled to be thereabouts.
  1. Simply A Legend
  2. Thosedaysaregone
  3. Golden Jeffrey
