Forecast

Raheen House (15/8), Gold Mount (3/1), Weekender (3/1), Sea The Lion (7/1), Kelly's Dino (11/1), Red Verdon (20/1), Island Brave (20/1), Maid Up (40/1)

Verdict
A fascinating clash between 112-rated performers GOLD MOUNT and Weekender with the former preferred after impressing enormously on his return to the UK in a C&D Listed race where he comfortably disposed of Raheen House. Weekender's Ebor second off top-weight was one of the best handicap performances of last season considering that race may well now be the hottest handicap in Europe so he can't be taken lightly. Raheen House failed to hit top gear at four but his three-year-old form was rock solid and perhaps he can build on his reappearance second now.
  1. Gold Mount
  2. Weekender
  3. Raheen House
