Forecast

Eye Smiling (8/11), Vintage Polly (6/1), Port Noir (6/1), Somekindasuperstar (12/1), Diamonds And Rust (14/1), Bezzas Lad (20/1), Sovereign Beauty (20/1), Wilfy (22/1), Sir Gordon (50/1), Yolo Aris (66/1)

Verdict
A three-year-old handicap in which only three have shown previous winning form can go to the progressive EYE SMILING who has won each of her last two starts and can defy a penalty and top weight to get the better of her nine rivals. The selection has the forecast ground in her favour and she can get the better of Port Noir who should have no issues with this step up in trip having won over the minimum distance on her most recent start. Third place can go to Sovereign Beauty who looks likely to appreciate the drop back in trip.
