Forecast

Caradoc (11/10), Mordred (4/1), Loch Ness Monster (4/1), Allegiant (5/1), Dark Red (11/2), Rotherwick (8/1), Highbrow (9/1), Lawn Ranger (14/1)

Verdict

ALLEGIANT has been the runner-up on four occasions so far this season but he is sure to be rewarded soon if he continues producing those consistent performances. With a drop back down to 1m2f here, the gelding has a great chance of getting his nose in front. Dark Red was much better at Newmarket last time and a repeat of that performance will see him so close again, while Rotherwick is a C&D winner here who is good enough to complete the placings on his return to this distance.
  1. Allegiant
  2. Dark Red
  3. Rotherwick
