Forecast

Soffia (13/8), Mabs Cross (4/1), Houtzen (5/1), Soldier's Call (13/2), Fairyland (12/1), So Perfect (12/1), Invincible Army (12/1), Hit The Bid (14/1), Urban Beat (20/1), Chessman (50/1), Caspian Prince (66/1), True Mason (66/1)

Verdict
SOFFIA won on this card 12 months ago, and was hugely impressive when scoring a Group 2 win over C&D in July. This is a step up on paper, but she looks more than ready for it, and should be able to get the better of Mabs Cross and Houtzen, the former taken to reverse Nunthorpe form with the placed pair, and the latter having her expected retirement delayed to give her a chance of matching her Antipodean exploits.
  1. Soffia
  2. Mabs Cross
  3. Houtzen
