Forecast

Marcela De Vega (1/1), Kingswear (3/1), Indigo Lake (4/1), Regal Legacy (6/1), Nicks Not Wonder (6/1), Baltic Wolve (20/1), Pummel (100/1)

Verdict
The filly Marcela De Vega sets the form standard on the basis of a much improved effort over C&D four weeks ago (holds Baltic Wolve) and should be afforded plenty of respect accordingly. However, it's safe to say that the newly-cheekpieced Indigo Lake has under-performed for John Gosden and there are also a couple of Charlie Appleby-trained runners worth considering. Of that duo the gelding operation and cheekpieces provide potential warning markers about the newcomer Regal Legacy. Therefore, the safest option is to chance further improvement from the more experienced and well-related KINGSWEAR (second-string to stablemate Royal Castle on Kempton debut).
