Forecast

Spice War (11/10), Barca (7/4), Heron (6/1), Brittanic (8/1), Royal Dancer (12/1), Earthly (12/1), Das Kapital (25/1), Tobacco Road (33/1)

Verdict
Heron stays extremely well, and despite having to shoulder a welter-burden could gain his revenge on recent conqueror Barca. The Marcus Tregoning-trained Barca was justifying favouritism (6-4) when breaking the maiden tag at the 15th attempt here (2m) last month, while the Brett Johnson-trained five-year-old was returning from a short mid-season break. However, assuming that the dreaded 'bounce' factor is avoided, both of the aforementioned horses will need to be in 'tip-top' shape to deny SPICE WAR a second straight win for Oliver Sherwood and Thomas Greatrex. On pedigree, he won't be troubled by this extra yardage and should strip fitter for his Kempton comeback win.
