Forecast

Gold Des Bois (16/5), Getaway Gorgeous (10/3), Drop The Anchor (5/1), Wolf Prince (6/1), Cayd Boy (10/1), Ten Ten (12/1), Thereisnodoubt (12/1), The Very Man (14/1), Hannon (14/1), Hybery (16/1), Golden Jewel (20/1), Hearts Are Trumps (20/1), Golden Spear (20/1), Recent Revelations (20/1), Shumaker (33/1), Got Trumped (33/1), Ex Patriot (40/1), Lignou (50/1), Bective Cave (66/1), Campeador (80/1), Benkei (125/1)

Verdict

A good big-field contest that can go to WOLF PRINCE. He doesn't look handicapped out of things in this sphere and should have come on plenty for a recent spin on the level. Listowel 1-2 Drop The Anchor and Getaway Gorgeous can go well again, while 2018-winner Golden Spear also looks primed for a big run.
