Forecast

Grey Mist (11/10), Up Ten Down Two (9/2), Gravity Wave (7/1), Bird For Life (7/1), Knight Commander (10/1), Fitzwilly (14/1), St Andrews (20/1), Lafilia (20/1), Party Royal (33/1), Coorg (40/1), Angel Gabrial (40/1), Consortium (40/1), Uncle Bernie (40/1)

Verdict
Knight Commander, Bird For Life and St Andrews have done enough to suggest they can make their presence felt, but it is not hard to be swayed by the claims of the in-form GREY MIST, who has not looked back since joining his current trainer. Lafilia has possibilities and is one to keep an eye on.
