Betting

Forecast

Full Intention (9/4), Fighting Temeraire (3/1), Ultimate Avenue (9/2), Human Nature (6/1), That Is The Spirit (7/1), Bobby Wheeler (8/1)

Verdict
A small but select field goes to post which looks to be a good opportunity for FIGHTING TEMERAIRE to get back to winning ways. The seven-year-old took the eye when staying on well last time and this test of both speed and stamina should be right up his street off a dangerous mark. Similar claims can be applied to Full Intention who is expected to run another solid race once again, while the likes of the fragile Bobby Wheeler and Human Nature look capable of putting in surprise efforts and may be on a going day.
