Forecasts

Palace Pier (11/10), Acquitted (2/1), Yoshimi (9/1), Monoski (12/1), Rich Belief (14/1), Gravity Force (14/1), He's A Keeper (16/1), Embolden (25/1)

Verdict

Acquitted has very few shortcomings having already scored on an artificial surface (the Polytrack at Kempton) and he won't be at all troubled by this stiff mile. In an eight-runner handicap he appears certain to at least fill the frame (1,2,3) under the experienced handling of the AW Champion Ben Curtis. However, in the shape of the most exciting PALACE PIER he faces a stern opponent. John Gosden sends his unbeaten Kingman colt north for his seasonal (and AW) debut with the strong suspicion being that he'll be swiftly progressing far beyond the handicapping ranks.
