Forecast

The Flying Sofa (1/4), Coal Stock (7/2), Mach One (5/1), Claudio Monteverdi (12/1), Duhr (25/1), Getaway Mission (25/1), Awesome Rock (40/1), Lesanti (40/1), Mrs Jack (50/1)

Verdict
A weak opener and while The Flying Sofa faces his easiest task to date, his Wincanton second last time was very disappointing and it may be worth siding with COAL STOCK to get the better of him as his latest effort at Stratford reads well in the context of this. Getaway Mission looks best of the rest.
  1. Coal Stock
  2. The Flying Sofa
