Forecasts

Oh This Is Us (5/2), Barristan The Bold (5/1), Lake Volta (5/1), Aljady (13/2), Arcanada (8/1), Hero Hero (9/1), Sir Busker (12/1), Akvavera (12/1), Humble Gratitude (16/1), Penwortham (16/1), Gabrial The Wire (22/1), Alemaratalyoum (33/1)

Verdict

Humble Gratitude should make a bold bid to follow up his recent win and goes well here, but so too do plenty of others, including the 2017 winner Penwortham, and last year's victor OH THIS IS US. The latter ran well here in Listed company earlier in the summer and is holding his form so has a solid chance of defending his title. Both Hero Hero and Sir Busker may not be far away, while Akvavera and Barristan the Bold are others with a squeak in wide-open quality handicap.
