Betting

Forecast

Indefatigable (7/2), Legends Gold (7/2), Cap Soleil (7/2), Coded Message (9/2), Early Morning Rain (17/2), Copper Gone West (11/1), Guardia Top (16/1), Ch'ti Diamond (16/1)

Verdict
This is considerably more open than the average Mares Listed race and none of the eight runners can be entirely ruled out. Classy INDEFATIGIBLE gets the nod despite having to give weight away all round with her Cheltenham win last season and Wetherby second this season both standout pieces of form. Chief among the dangers are Copper Gone West who comes into this in good order and Legends Gold who has improved out of all recognition this season.
  1. Indefatigable
  2. Copper Gone West
  3. Legends Gold
