Forecast

Simsir (5/2), Golden Valour (9/2), Bold Approach (13/2), Charcor (8/1), Sky Seven (8/1), Sheisdiesel (10/1), Rips Dream (10/1), Breaking Story (12/1), King's Vow (14/1), Secret Wizard (25/1), Sovereigns Bright (25/1), Spruce Meadows (33/1), Miss Snossyboots (66/1)

Verdict
The Aga Khan-owned SIMSIR can land a hat-trick of wins as the Mick Halford-trained gelding looks to add to wins at Cork and over C&D in September. The three-year-old could face stiff opposition from stall 13 in the shape of last time out winner Bold Approach for the Jim Bolger/Kevin Manning combination and course winner Sky Seven in first-time blinkers. Victorious over C&D, Charcor and Golden Valour should not be underestimated while Sheisdiesel has a record of two wins and a place from three starts over C&D. Secret Wizard met trouble in running on a couple of occasions earlier this month and could be overpriced.
  1. Simsir
  2. Bold Approach
  3. Sheisdiesel
