Forecast

Angel Alexander (2/1), Gabrial The Saint (4/1), Orvar (6/1), Gabrial The Devil (7/1), Canford Bay (9/1), Excessable (10/1), Makanah (10/1), Acclaim The Nation (11/1), Abel Handy (14/1), Just Glamorous (14/1), Bellevarde (16/1), Powerallied (16/1), Venturous (20/1), Hawaam (20/1)

Verdict
A wide-open sprint and Dr Marwan Koukash's colours are heavily represented with Gabrial The Saint, Powerallied and Gabrial The Devil in the mix for trainer Richard Fahey. The last-named looks best-placed here, having won last time out at Haydock and with his claiming rider offsetting most of the penalty. Abel Handy and Bellevarde have been behind the Fahey runners recently but can get involved in the finish again. CANFORD BAY has been enjoying a busy summer and defied a high draw to win here last month from Powerallied. Things didn't go his way at York since but, from a low stall, he can get back on track.
  1. Canford Bay
  2. Gabrial The Devil
  3. Bellevarde
