Forecast

Persian Sun (5/2), Vexed (11/4), Bill Cody (4/1), Ban Shoof (5/1), Affluence (10/1), Say Nothing (12/1), Running Cloud (20/1), Contingency Fee (25/1), Chinese Alphabet (25/1)

Verdict
PERSIAN SUN went close to success at Kempton last time out and looks to have a great chance of adding to his record here over this longer distance off just a 2lb higher mark. Vexed has been shaping like he needs much further in his races so far, therefore, he may now show his best from this trip, while Affluence is worth including for the placings as he was a winner at this course at the back end of last year and is much more suited to this distance.
  1. Persian Sun
  2. Vexed
  3. Affluence
