Forecast

Ellaat (10/3), Pearl Warrior (9/2), Musalsal (9/2), Millford Sound (5/1), Bellepower (10/1), Clashaniska (12/1), Alice Milligan (12/1), Bear Claws (16/1), Bar Room Bore (16/1), Golden Cliffs (16/1), Followme Followyou (20/1), Scotts Honor (20/1), For Everyone (20/1), Palabres (33/1), Clemencia (33/1), Light Of Fire (33/1), Vita Veritas (33/1)

Verdict
MUSALSAL has plenty of 1¼m winners in his pedigree, some of them very smart, and he has shown enough in maidens at shorter to think he can make a mockery of his opening mark. Ellaat is feared on the form he has been showing in similar events, while Pearl Warrior was better than the result last time, and should be competitive for his in-form stable.
