Forecast

Tricky Dicky (11/4), Scuzeme (9/2), Mujassam (5/1), Magical Effect (17/2), Mr Orange (10/1), Gullane One (11/1), Round The Island (14/1), Penny Pot Lane (16/1), John Clare (16/1), Princess Palliser (25/1), Cosmic Chatter (33/1), Mutafarrid (40/1), Mystical Moon (50/1)

Verdict
In an open contest where some of these rivals have been taking each other on in similar contests, the preference is for SCUZEME. His defeat last time out doesn't reflect the nature of the race and would've been challenging for the win if he wasn't badly impeded at a crucial stage and he can continue his upward curve for his trainer, who has impressed so far in his rookie season. Mujassam was also unlucky not to win last time out and has been in good form recently and despite the draw not being ideal, he represents solid each-way claims, while the consistent Tricky Dicky is likely to be challenging for minor honours despite his lofty weight alongside Mr Orange.
  1. Scuzeme
  2. Mujassam
  3. Tricky Dicky
