Forecasts

Global Storm (7/2), Maori Knight (9/2), Hypothetical (11/2), Acquitted (6/1), Tritonic (9/1), Grand Rock (14/1), Highland Chief (20/1), Cepheus (20/1), Ya Hayati (20/1), Bronze River (22/1), Yoshimi (25/1), Laser Show (25/1), Hms President (33/1), Dogged (33/1), Gallaside (66/1), Tom Collins (80/1)

Verdict

Acquitted is going to prove popular here after following home the talented Palace Pier at Newcastle, but he's 4lb higher in defeat and facing a deep field now. One that appeals more is MAORI KNIGHT, Richard Hughes' colt having been mugged on the line at Haydock recently. This stiffer track should be ideal and he's greatly respected from an unchanged mark of 83. As with Acquitted, Hypothetical improved in defeat last time and is going the right way; while Tritonic, Grand Rock and Highland Chief all need some consideration.
  1. Maori Knight
  2. Hypothetical
  3. Tritonic
