Forecast

Sharjah (7/2), Double Talkin Jive (4/1), Alcander (6/1), Yamato (7/1), Santorini Sun (15/2), Miss Louise (8/1), Roachdale House (10/1), Millford Sound (12/1), Morph Speed (14/1), Jazzy J (14/1), Aunty Audrey (14/1), Cape Agulhas (16/1), Glory (20/1), Cross Step (20/1), Doune Castle (25/1), Siam Dawn (25/1), Glenbank King (66/1)

Verdict
In a contest where there appears to be a lack of pace it may be left to Sharjah to make the early running. The gallant 10-year-old has been running well in defeat in a number of starts since October and may set the race up in the closing stages for a couple of quicker closers. YAMATO has been running well in a number of starts since landing a Wolverhampton 2m½f handicap in October off a 12lb lower mark and can compete for the win with Cross Step who will not be far off the pace when the stalls open. C&D winners Miss Louise and Alcander both have decent form here in the last 12 months and should not be taken lightly.
  1. Yamato
  2. Cross Step
  3. Sharjah
