Forecast

Raydiance (11/4), Aljari (3/1), Asdaa (5/1), Mohareb (6/1), Robero (6/1), Zylan (12/1), Jungle Speed (12/1)

Verdict
Raydiance kicked off the calendar year in a most pleasing manner when scoring over C&D on New Year's Day, so must enter the thought process now dropping back to a more suitable trip (found wanting for stamina in a 1m Fast-Track Qualifier at Newcastle subsequently), while the in-form and very closely matched pair Asdaa and Robero also merit respect. However, the least exposed horse in the field is the Marco Botti-trained colt ALJARI. He was far too keen in first-time blinkers (discarded) in an ultra-competitive Class 2 handicap at Newcastle last week, but really deserves another opportunity to prove his true worth.
  1. Aljari
  2. Raydiance
  3. Robero
