Forecast

Final Endeavour (11/10), Calonne (3/1), Mother Vincent (7/1), Light Breeze (7/1), Lady In Lavender (8/1), Lightsider (9/1), Bodak (9/1), Cj Cregg (10/1), Oakmont (10/1), Sarah Jessica (14/1), Vocal Duke (16/1), Dance Emperor (16/1), Marwari (16/1), Griffyndor (20/1), Castle Guest (20/1), Mixed Media (33/1), Silvretta Schwarz (33/1), War Anthem (150/1), Rule The Sea (150/1)

Verdict
A weak but wide-open contest this and the sort to take a flier in. In-form Sheila Lavery's handicap debutant LIGHTSIDER has an absence to overcome but having met Group One horses earlier this campaign he could improve massively for this huge class drop. Others with likable claims include Lady In Lavender and Calonne.
  1. Lightsider
  2. Lady In Lavender
  3. Calonne
