Forecast

First Eleven (7/2), Al Muffrih (7/2), Epaulement (10/1), Aquarium (10/1), Kelly's Dino (14/1), Lucius Tiberius (14/1), Indianapolis (14/1), Charles Kingsley (14/1), Bombyx (14/1), Koeman (16/1), Island Brave (18/1), Melting Dew (20/1), Restorer (20/1), Byron Flyer (25/1), Eddystone Rock (33/1), Everything For You (33/1), Society Red (50/1)

Verdict
John Gosden sends his May York winner First Eleven into battle off top-weight of 9st 10lb. At first glance this appears to be asking an awful lot in an ultra-competitive handicap but given the exploits of some of the beaten horses since (namely Jumaira Prince and Proschema), a subsequent 5lb rise could be considered lenient. Further down the race card the likes of Koeman (seventh in this race in 2018) and the Ayr foes Island Brave and Kelly's Dino make each-way appeal. However, the selection is the unexposed Sea The Stars gelding AL MUFFRIH who appears to have been laid out for this race since landing a sizeable gamble in the Zetland Gold Cup at Redcar.
  1. Al Muffrih
  2. Kelly's Dino
  3. First Eleven
