Forecast

Seaborn (11/8), High Acclaim (9/2), Paddy The Chef (11/2), Simbirsk (7/1), Brittanic (9/1), Il Sicario (10/1), Bayston Hill (16/1), Saxo Jack (25/1)

Verdict
SEABORN is asked for more by the handicapper but looks the most solid option despite that, and can score again. Brittanic is no win machine but ran well on his latest outing and looks the danger. Il Sicario might be best of the rest.
  1. Seaborn
  2. Brittanic
  3. Il Sicario
