Forecast

Court Jurado (13/8), Veiled Secret (4/1), Secret Melody (8/1), Cawthorne (8/1), Getawaytonewbay (17/2), American Craftsman (10/1), Unsafe Conduct (11/1), Captain Speaking (20/1), Aria Rose (20/1), Finvarra (20/1), Amangiri (22/1), Simon The Great (28/1), Dun Bay Creek (50/1), Champagne Vintage (66/1), Peace Approved (66/1)

Verdict
A big field, but it's quantity rather than quality and there's not many you can fancy. Top weight Aria Rose looks one of the main candidates after her Bangor debut last month where she shaped nicely for a long way, and Unsafe Conduct could take a hand if he's not been affected by his late Bangor fall, but GETAWAYTONEWBAY is bred for the job and would probably have beaten Unsafe Conduct even if he hadn't fallen. She jumped and travelled well there and in the hope this isn't run at a crawl, she can come out on top.
  1. Getawaytonewbay
  2. Aria Rose
  3. Unsafe Conduct
