Forecast

Art Mauresque (10/11), Chef D'Equipe (2/1), Asockastar (6/1), Swift Crusador (11/1), Too Many Diamonds (66/1)

Verdict
On better ground Art Mauresque would have been an automatic pick for this, but heavy ground is something he's avoided for much of his racing career, and it does mean he can be taken on. Asockastar is very useful but might also want better ground, so it gives CHEF D'EQUIPE the chance to cause a small upset. He'll not mind conditions and if he can reproduce his Newbury second from earlier in the season, that could be good enough today.
  1. Chef D'Equipe
  2. Art Mauresque
  3. Asockastar
