Forecast

Favorite Moon (3/1), Prince Alex (5/1), Zeeband (7/1), Strawberry Rock (7/1), Grand Bazaar (15/2), Ispahan (8/1), Punctuation (10/1), Dancing Harry (14/1), King's Charisma (18/1), Bronze River (22/1), Toronto (100/1)

Verdict

A strong 3-y-o handicap with a host of upwardly-mobile sorts in opposition, the vote narrowly in favour of ISPAHAN. He's 1 lb better off for a short-head defeat behind re-opposing Zeeband at Thirsk recently and it is distinctly possible residual greenness was at play in the finish. The latter-named is a live player also, whilst Prince Alex and Favorite Moon are also shortlisted.

  1. ISPAHAN
  2. ZEEBAND (IRE)
  3. PRINCE ALEX
