Forecast

Boudica Bay (5/2), Jeffrey Harris (11/4), Hard Solution (4/1), Kaafy (11/2), Tease Maid (10/1), Economic Crisis (14/1), Shall We Begin (16/1), Northern Society (18/1), Bluella (20/1), The Grey Zebedee (25/1), Camanche Grey (33/1)

Verdict
The last three-year-old to win this came back in 2014 but to be fair only eight have tried since then and they are well represented this time. HARD SOLUTION may well be the pick of the bunch this time having shown himself capable outside of selling class in his last two races. Kaafy is another from that age group who enters the equation having run well last time at Ayr while Shall We Begin is still worth watching in the market despite a less than advantageous draw. Of the older contingent dual C&D winner Boudica Bay has to be considered despite the widest draw of all with the well-drawn Jeffrey Harris having possibilities of making the frame.
  1. Hard Solution
  2. Kaafy
  3. Boudica Bay
