Forecasts

Silk Forest (3/1), Pronouncement (10/3), Current Option (9/2), Soul Search (7/1), Unforgetable (7/1), Could Be King (14/1), Ridenza (14/1), Southern Horse (18/1), Flash Gordon (20/1), Smash Williams (28/1), King Of Athens (33/1), Chessman (40/1), No Needs Never (40/1), Rhydwyn (100/1)

Verdict

A cracking contest and the suggestion is SOUL SEARCH, who may have only won once, but has often been keeping better company than this. She maintained her usual consistency last time and can gain reward for that today. Could Be King looks a strong contender, while Silk Forest, Ridenza and Current Option are the others who make appeal.
  1. Soul Search
