Forecast

The Bell Conductor (10/11), Royal Context (4/1), Auchterarder (5/1), Rathagan (8/1), Quiet Word (16/1), Ilsereno (20/1), Navajo Dawn (40/1), Mews House (50/1), Evora Knights (66/1)

Verdict
An interesting contest with both of the penalised runners looking as though they deserve their positions towards the head of the market but have something to prove. Fibresand winner Royal Context has to cope with a drop back to 5f having looked as though a step up in trip would be in order while Beverley winner Auchterarder has to cope with this surface and a long absence. For those reasons THE BELL CONDUCTOR is taken to build on his three sound efforts so far having shown plenty of speed over 5f and being by a sire (Dandy Man) who is building a good reputation on Fibresand. Rathagan and Quiet Word are two others who should be noted and add some depth to what is an intriguing little puzzle.
