Forecast

Giga White (10/3), Baladiya (4/1), Ice Cold In Alex (5/1), Ahlan Bil Zain (6/1), Beckwith Place (7/1), Tintoretto (8/1), Waitaki (10/1), Lord Rapscallion (12/1), Spanish Tenor (12/1), Kafu (16/1), Sevenleft (20/1), Have A Nice Day (25/1), Blyton (33/1), Beleaguerment (40/1)

Verdict
C&D winner ICE COLD IN ALEX shaped very well when third to Ahlan Bil Zain at Gowran on his return, and he can reverse the placings on 5lb better terms. Giga White, wearing blinkers for the first time, looks the pick of a couple from the Ger Lyons yard, and is feared, with handicap debutant Baladiya also respected despite being 1lb wrong at the weights.
