Forecast

Group One Power (4/5), Behind The Wall (11/8), Hover (5/1), Amsby (7/1), Billhilly (20/1), Captain Claret (33/1), Magic Lute (50/1), La Poseur (100/1)

Verdict
Group One Power made a winning start at Kempton late last month and is sure to go well again for an in-form stable but he's got a serious question posed here in conceding 7lb to BEHIND THE WALL. Archie Watson's runner bumped into the potentially smart Dublin Pharoah over C&D seven days ago and gave him a fright in the home straight before being reeled in. It won't be as easy to run him down giving weight and he's likely going to have benefitted from that experience, with any improvement giving him excellent claims. Hover showed some potential on debut and can make the frame if building on that now.
