Forecast

Nifty At Fifty (7/2), I'm Wiser Now (7/2), Favori De Sivola (9/2), Kauto The King (8/1), Mick Manhattan (9/1), Mrs Miggins (12/1), Roccowithlove (14/1), Granitic (16/1), It's For Alan (16/1), Not Going Out (16/1), Everlanes (25/1), Flowing Cadenza (33/1), Dontcounturchikens (33/1), Cottonvale (50/1), Fethard Flyer (66/1)

Verdict
FAVORI DE SIVOLA looks to have been brought along steadily with handicaps in mind and with this longer trip very much in his favour, gets the nod in a tricky opener. Nifty At Fifty does have his quirks but is in good heart and looks a threat while Mrs Miggins is back on a more suitable surface and should give it a good go from the front.
  1. Favori De Sivola
  2. Nifty At Fifty
  3. Mrs Miggins
