Forecast

Carrie Des Champs (2/5), Bialco (10/3), Lily's Gem (9/2), Falkland Castle (20/1), Island Mahee (50/1), Refer To Rory (50/1), Phoebes Saga (50/1), Miss Lanefox (66/1), Lastofthecosmics (66/1), Cons Amigo (200/1)

Verdict
Gordon Elliott (2015) and Stuart Crawford (2017) have both saddled previous winners of this race and are represented by Carrie Des Champs and Lily's Gem respectively here. Neither would be surprise winners, but the solid form of BIALCO suggests that he can defy a penalty at this level. Little else makes much appeal.
  1. Bialco
  2. Carrie Des Champs
  3. Lily's Gem
