Betting

Forecast

Mekong (1/1), Raheen House (9/2), Austrian School (5/1), Making Miracles (8/1), Buzz (14/1), Desert Skyline (14/1), Gold Mount (16/1), Glan Y Gors (100/1)

Verdict

MEKONG had Austrian School and Making Miracles behind when chasing home Dee Ex Bee in the Henry II at Sandown last time, and he will be even better returned to a soft surface, so gets a confident vote. Raheen House could get back on track having moved to William Haggas since last seen, and Desert Skyline is not ruled out having been highly tried for the past couple of seasons.
