Forecasts

Alrajaa (7/4), Michele Strogoff (7/2), Strict Tempo (11/2), Aluqair (8/1), Felix The Poet (9/1), Hold Still (14/1), Buckingham (14/1), Balladeer (20/1), Commander Han (20/1)

Verdict

Old foes Aluqair and Alrajaa are unexposed in handicaps, with the latter fully expected to gain his revenge (now fully race-fit) for defeat at Salisbury in August. Of the others, the consistent front-running Michele Strogoff seeks a deserved success before a future handicap rise (3lb) kicks-in, while the top-weight Felix The Poet drops back from competing in Class 2 and 3 handicaps. However, the preferred option is the Eve Johnson Houghton-trained course winner BUCKINGHAM. He served notice that his turn is nigh with a staying on second on the downs at Epsom (7f) three weeks ago.
  1. Buckingham
  2. Alrajaa
  3. Michele Strogoff
