Forecast

Mandarin (7/2), Big Kitten (6/1), Indianapolis (7/1), Genetics (7/1), Melting Dew (7/1), Hyanna (8/1), Reshoun (10/1), Badenscoth (10/1), Breath Caught (10/1), Temple Church (10/1), Koeman (12/1), Restorer (14/1)

Verdict
BIG KITTEN looks as if he will appreciate the step back up in trip and he could be the one to beat if he can build on his effort at York last time out. Mandarin looks the main danger in his hat-trick bid with just a 6lb rise to cope with. Restorer and Temple Church are both well-handicapped if they can bounce back to form here.
  1. Big Kitten
  2. Mandarin
  3. Restorer
