Forecast

Saaheq (6/1), Abel Handy (13/2), Copper Knight (8/1), Cowboy Soldier (8/1), Justanotherbottle (9/1), Tommy Taylor (9/1), Open Wide (12/1), Fairy Falcon (12/1), Eeh Bah Gum (14/1), Foolaad (16/1), Dark Shot (20/1), Harome (20/1), Line Of Reason (20/1), Fendale (25/1), Poyle Vinnie (28/1), Orvar (28/1), Powerallied (28/1), Royal Birth (33/1), Quick Look (40/1), Marnie James (50/1), Outrage (50/1), Henley (80/1)

Verdict
LINE OF REASON may not have the most attractive recent strike-rate but he's dropped to a nice mark and has been running well in defeat on recent starts. Abel Handy is still relatively lightly raced and improved from his reappearance to win at Musselburgh last time out. Declan Carroll's charge was a Group 3 winner as a juvenile and may have more to give this season. Saaheq arrives in form and can't be ruled out with Silvestre De Sousa taking over in the saddle.
