Forecast

Peace Prevails (11/10), Ashazuri (11/4), El Borracho (4/1), Jumping Jack (9/1), Jawshan (12/1)

Verdict
Ashazuri is a consistent and reliable filly who tackles this 1m4f trip for the first time after finishing a creditable third to Mr Scaramanga over 1m2f here a fortnight ago. Her dam (Shesha Bear) was a winner over this trip so that offers some hope that she'll stay the extra yardage and there's always the distinct possibility that in a small-field scenario her stamina won't be truly put to the test. However, we'll err on the side of caution with the recent C&D winner PEACE PREVAILS who remains reasonably handicapped despite a 5lb rise.
  1. Peace Prevails
  2. Ashazuri
  3. El Borracho
