Forecast

Goshen (5/2), Allmankind (7/2), Solo (4/1), Aspire Tower (5/1), Burning Victory (12/1), A Wave Of The Sea (12/1), Sir Psycho (16/1), Cerberus (20/1), Hook Up (33/1), Navajo Pass (50/1), Never Do Nothing (100/1), Lord Lamington (100/1), Yellow Tiger (100/1)

Verdict

What an opener on the final day, they certainly won't be hanging around with GOSHEN, Allmankind and Aspire Tower in attendance. The first-named has looked seriously impressive in his winning sequence and it's questionable if anything can go by him. He's likely to set a frantic pace and, seemingly, won't stop. The Skelton runner is preferred of the other pair, with Aspire Tower a last-time-out faller. Adonis winner Solo put in a very smart performance and Paul Nicholls thinks he's got a star in the making, but this will be run a lot differently and, as such, is another big test. Stablemate Sir Psycho is no back marker while Navajo Pass and Burning Times appeal at bigger prices.
  1. Goshen
  2. Allmankind
  3. Sir Psycho
