Forecast

Moon Trouble (9/4), Kick On Kick On (4/1), Blue De Vega (5/1), Gracious John (5/1), Ice Age (8/1), Spoof (12/1), Orvar (14/1), Stake Acclaim (25/1)

Verdict
It would be no surprise to see Kick On Kick On do just that after his wind operation, but the vote goes to bottom-weight MOON TROUBLE, who shaped well over a distance beyond his best on his first run for a new stable at Kempton and should be better suited to this sharper test. A host of dangers are headed by Blue De Vega, Orvar and Gracious John.
  1. Moon Trouble
  2. Kick On Kick On
  3. Gracious John
