Forecast

Altior (1/3), Kalashnikov (5/1), Sceau Royal (9/1), Dynamite Dollars (12/1), Bun Doran (20/1), Simply Ned (50/1)

Verdict
The winner of the last two runnings of this Grade 2 it looks this time around to be the perfect opportunity for ALTIOR to bounce back to winning ways. Far from disgraced at Ascot last time this will be his second run back from a wind op and on ratings he has nearly a stone in hand of this field. Sceau Royal has seen the back of Altior on a fair few occasions and he may well be the one to bustle up the Henderson runner again reversing form with Bun Doran from their Kempton meeting. Of the younger brigade Dynamite Dollars is preferred to Kalashnikov with the former still looking as though he is worthy of a higher rating although this will be his toughest test to date.
  1. Altior
  2. Sceau Royal
  3. Dynamite Dollars
