Forecasts

Dandy Spirit (11/8), Maggie Thunder (9/2), Red Cymbal (5/1), Primo Uomo (9/1), That's Not Me (11/1), Musharrif (12/1), Ecclesiastical (14/1), Musical Rue (33/1), Nightflight (40/1), Socratic (50/1), Upstate New York (66/1)

Verdict

RED CYMBAL is the type to bounce back quickly, and with his last run easily excused, is taken to build on his 3 recent runner-up efforts and get back to winning ways for the first time since landing this contest last year. Dandy Spirit is feared most as he bids for a quick-fire C&D hat-trick, with Maggie Thunder and Ecclesiastical both holding solid each-way claims.
