Forecast

Eye Of The Water (5/4), Brother Bentley (6/1), Dark Poet (6/1), Lysander Belle (7/1), Global Acclamation (9/1), Halle's Harbour (11/1), Tizwotitiz (12/1), Sybil Grand (12/1), Frea (16/1), Superstition (16/1), Maktay (25/1), Yfenni (33/1), Shesadabber (50/1), Magnetic (50/1), Andies Armies (66/1)

Verdict

Eye Of The Water has a good draw here and his consistency could be rewarded in a race which is less competitive than it looks.Halle's Harbour represents last year's winning yard and will appreciate the drop in class, whilst Dark Poet has a similar profile to one the trainer's winners at Bath on Wednesday and he needs to be monitored in the market for a stable in good form. LYSANDER BELLE responded to more positive tactics by producing a career best at Southwell in midweek when the market anticipated a big run. She was just touched off by the favourite but finished clear of the third and a reproduction of that effort may be good enough.
  1. Lysander Belle
  2. Eye Of The Water
  3. Halle's Harbour
