Forecast

Lord North (3/1), Kynren (6/1), Clon Coulis (13/2), Amedeo Modigliani (7/1), Biometric (8/1), Coolagh Forest (11/1), Kick On (11/1), Escobar (16/1), Dark Vision (16/1), Dunkirk Harbour (16/1), Glen Shiel (18/1), Waarif (18/1), Mitchum Swagger (28/1), Flaming Spear (28/1), Commander Cole (28/1), Arctic Sound (40/1), Chiefofchiefs (50/1), Saltonstall (50/1), So Beloved (66/1), Pogo (66/1), Circus Couture (66/1)

Verdict
A tricky finale to the card but COOLAGH FOREST is the tentative selection in his bid for a hat-trick having won impressively on soft ground last time out and he only has a 6lb penalty to carry for that. Amedeo Modigliani and Lord North are both unexposed sorts who should have more to give while Clon Coulis usually saves her best for this venue.
  1. Coolagh Forest
  2. Lord North
  3. Clon Coulis
