Forecasts

Mubhij (2/1), Name The Wind (4/1), Diocles Of Rome (5/1), Raydiance (13/2), Vale Of Kent (7/1), Weld Al Emarat (10/1), Hajjam (12/1), Woven (14/1), Gallipoli (16/1)

Verdict

A very tricky 7f handicap featuring 2018 runner up Gallipoli. Mubhij is a low mileage C&D winner who is certain to figure prominently in the market, while the James Tate-trained Name The Wind was thought good enough to contest the 2000 Guineas. Furthermore, with winning form at Southwell, the continuing heatwave will undoubtedly boost the chances of Weld Al Emarat (suited by a slow surface). Diocles Of Rome is an improving 4yo, and Raydiance is turned out quickly after winning at Redcar. However, in a wide open race the tentative shout is for the AW regular VALE OF KENT who posted an excellent effort (seventh) in Ascot's Royal Hunt Cup.
  1. Vale Of Kent
  2. Weld Al Emarat
  3. Mubhij
