Forecast

Redgrave (3/1), Dark Devil (7/2), Scofflaw (6/1), Heart Of Soul (7/1), Manfadh (7/1), Parole (10/1), Confrontational (12/1), Bell Heather (12/1), Tough Remedy (16/1), Nightingale Valley (20/1), Bold Statement (50/1)

Verdict
Dr Marwan Koukash is once again well represented with three runners all from different stables taking part having had a trio finish 2-3-5 last year. All his runners this time around have a chance with Bell Heather having a chance of gaining a soft lead although Dark Devil looks the pick of his triumvirate having run well off a much higher mark in this last year. It’s likely that both Scofflaw and REDGRAVE will be looking to come from off the pace to score, the former is in top form if he stays this trip while the latter needs some good fortune but is nicely weighted on his best form which he’s looked near of late. Parole is also of interest despite the long absence.
  1. Redgrave
  2. Dark Devil
