Forecasts

Ascot Day (7/2), Gossip Column (4/1), Heart Of Soul (9/2), Tor (11/2), Al Kout (11/2), Super Kid (7/1), Marengo (10/1), Suegioo (12/1), Mercer's Troop (14/1), Lady Natasha (66/1)

Verdict

TOR looks to be on the way back after a solid effort at Hamilton last time and is handicapped to give a good account of himself. The trio of Marwan Koukash-owned runners (all trained by Ian Williams) provide formidable opposition, and Heart Of Soul may do best of the three, although a bold show cannot be ruled out from either old-timer Suegioo or Gossip Column. Al Kout is respected, and Super Kid isn't out of it either.
