Forecast

Declared Interest (9/4), Bright Start (9/4), La Dragontea (11/2), The City's Phantom (17/2), Systemic (10/1), Markazi (16/1), Maurimo (20/1), Melburnian (28/1), Cosmic Power (40/1), Dr Rio (40/1), Mutaabeq (50/1)

Verdict

BRIGHT START doesn’t need to find much to defy his current mark and it’s possible a gelding operation and first-time cheekpieces may do the trick. The City's Phantom wasn't seen to anything like best effect at Newbury last time and should still improve, with Declared Interest also feared back at this level.
