Forecast

Twilighting (3/1), Fantasy Justifier (11/2), Langley Vale (11/2), Cool Strutter (6/1), Mad Endeavour (8/1), Jacksonfire (8/1), Lily Of Year (11/1), Frea (12/1), Rebecke (14/1), Counterfeit (14/1), Alfie's Angel (20/1), What A Dazzler (25/1), Lambrini Lullaby (25/1), Swendab (33/1), Hellofagame (50/1), Tintern Spirit (50/1), Burauq (50/1)

Verdict
LANGELY VALE could be called an unlucky loser last time out over this course and distance when hampered on the run-in and while he is a difficult horse to catch right he may just be good enough in this weak-looking contest. Another infrequent winner is Cool Strutter but the seven-year-old has been running some useful races of late and certainly looks capable of running into a place at the very least especially if he gets his way at the head of affairs. Veteran Swendab showed enough last time out that he may have once last decent effort in him before retirement.
