Forecast

Sergei Prokofiev (15/8), Smash Williams (6/1), Son Of Rest (6/1), Soffia (8/1), Medicine Jack (10/1), Burmese Waltz (12/1), Urban Beat (14/1), Chessman (16/1), All The King's Men (16/1), Downforce (20/1), Primo Uomo (20/1), Gordon Lord Byron (20/1), Angelic Light (25/1), Swissterious (25/1), Fantasy (33/1), Texas Rock (50/1)

Verdict
SON OF REST gets the nod in a wide-open contest. The Fozzy Stack-trained Group 1 runner-up, dead-heated in a famous Ayr Gold Cup in September, when well backed all week. The five-year-old can hold off the attentions of the solid and consistent Smash Williams and the potential improver, C&D winner Medicine Jack from the Ger Lyons yard who have started the season well.
  1. Son Of Rest
  2. Smash Williams
  3. Medicine Jack
