Forecast

Sebastian's Wish (4/1), The Resdev Way (5/1), Buyer Beware (5/1), Trautmann (11/2), Pammi (11/2), Question Of Faith (7/1), Hugoigo (10/1), Tomorrow's Angel (10/1), Golden Jeffrey (10/1), Spark Of War (14/1), Enemy Of The State (16/1)

Verdict
The weather could play a part but, so long as conditions remain dry, SEBASTIAN'S WISH may have found the right opportunity to end a two-year drought. The four-time winner had a poor 2018 which saw his handicap mark slump dramatically. There were positive signs on his first Flat run this term before the ground turned against him last time. Another drop in the weights makes him an attractive proposition in a field where few make any appeal on recent form. The Resdev Way did score at Yarmouth but he has struggled in this grade off similar marks before and Question Of Faith has proven herself here in the past but recent form raises serious concerns.
