Forecast

Fujaira King (11/10), My Excelsa (5/2), Reims (4/1), Wondrous Scene (5/1), Tomshalfbrother (13/2), Jeans Maite (25/1)

Verdict
Fujaira King sets the standard on the basis of his form in Ireland for Michael O'Callaghan but equally it's impossible to ignore a less productive effort on debut for Stuart Williams at Kempton, and it remains to be seen how he handles the switch to Fibresand. On a related form line, there isn't too much to choose between that aforementioned horse and the selection MY EXCELSA, while the other Irish-trained runner Wondrous Scene also enters the reckoning on a strict line through the Aidan O'Brien-trained Yale. However, with a reasonable training record this side of the Irish Sea (admittedly mainly up in Scotland) a chance is taken on the Johnny Levins-trained filly.
  1. My Excelsa
  2. Wondrous Scene
  3. Fujaira King
