Forecast

Flic Ou Voyou (7/2), Daphne Du Clos (7/2), On To Victory (7/2), Farouk De Cheneau (9/2), Up The Straight (5/1), Whatsupwithyou (8/1), The Hotelier (66/1), Numitor (100/1), Counteract (100/1)

Verdict
UP THE STRAIGHT has shown enough in his first three starts to suggest he would be capable of landing this for trainer Richard Rowe. He produced his best performance last time out in defeat but if reproducing close to that he may prove too strong for his rivals. All eyes will be on Farouk De Cheneau making his British debut. He showed a good attitude when racing in France and if continuing his progression, he should go well. The mare Daphne Du Clos has been running well all season and can possibly give the selection most to do.
  1. Up The Straight
  2. Daphne Du Clos
  3. Farouk De Cheneau
