Forecast

Magical Spirit (9/2), Venturous (5/1), Copper Knight (5/1), Lahore (11/2), Fool For You (13/2), Cowboy Soldier (12/1), El Hombre (14/1), Lord Riddiford (16/1), Encore d'Or (16/1), Caspian Prince (28/1), Ornate (33/1), Outrage (50/1)

Verdict
An intriguing contest with some seasoned handicappers taking on one or two progressive types. Fool For You may struggle to repeat her victory of last year where she held off Copper Knight a previous winner who now has to concede weight to the entire field. The key to this race may well be the pace (expected to be fast) which should be set by the likes of Ornate and Caspian Prince. That ought to suit LAHORE down to the ground as he bids to follow up his Doncaster win although don’t write off Cowboy Soldier out of that same contest. The progressive Magical Spirit who has an impressive 212 6f record here will also appreciate that fast pace although he has to prove himself at this level.
  1. Lahore
  2. Cowboy Soldier
  3. Magical Spirit
