Forecast

Judex Lefou (4/7), Dora De Janeiro (4/1), Divine Gift (4/1), Road To Reward (18/1), Flood Defence (33/1), County Fair (33/1), Magnum (40/1)

Verdict
DORA DE JANEIRO looks to have the best form of those on show and is the selection based on her fine effort at Carlisle earlier this month. The mare was a little one.paced in the closing stages but given the quality of opposition, she may prove too good for her rivals. Judex Lefou has shown a pleasing consistency in all his racecourse appearances and if continuing on a upwards trajectory, may give the likely favourite most to do. Road To Reward showed enough on his debut at Sedgefield earlier this month to suggest he will be winning races sooner rather than later but may have to settle for minor honours.
