Forecasts

Amoola Gold (4/1), Dustin Des Mottes (5/1), Molineaux (6/1), Air Navigator (6/1), Azzerti (8/1), Chef D'Equipe (10/1), Forth Bridge (10/1), Barton Knoll (14/1), Templehills (16/1), Got Away (20/1), Domaine De L'Isle (50/1)

Verdict

In a word, tough. With the Tom George string in excellent order, there's at least scope to expect a relatively strong showing from the Newbury regular Air Navigator who has recently had his wind tinkered with (also wears a tongue-tie). Meanwhile, the likes of Amoola Gold and Templehills are also considered as possible contenders. However, the horse to stick is the Alan King-trained AZZERTI. Although on a strict interpretation of weights and measures he would appear hard pushed to confirm Ascot placings with Dustin Des Mottes, he's clearly progressed quickly since that clash, and remains reasonably weighted from an official BHA handicap mark of 135.
  1. Azzerti
  2. Templehills
  3. Air Navigator
