Forecast

Max Dynamite (10/3), Cleonte (7/2), Lucky Deal (11/2), Corelli (11/2), Younevercall (11/2), Pallasator (10/1), Black Corton (10/1), Coeur Blimey (16/1), Paddys Motorbike (25/1), Cayirli (25/1), Jukebox Jive (33/1), Le Maitre Chat (33/1), Pilansberg (125/1)

Verdict
A fascinating contest with a couple of National Hunt stars making their Flat debuts. Pallasator may have more on his hands this time off top weight in what looks a stronger renewal than the race he took last year and he's now a 10-year-old. With that in mind, it may be worth taking him on with Grade 1 winning chaser BLACK CORTON who rates as a fascinating runner for Paul Nicholls. Younevercall is another to be interested in making a Flat debut while both Corelli and Cleonte have both shaped as if this step up in trip could suit.
  1. Black Corton
  2. Cleonte
  3. Younevercall
