Forecasts

Midnight Aurora (13/8), First Assembly (11/4), One For Dunstan (3/1), Get An Oscar (17/2), Eglantier (12/1), Kilkeaskin Molly (16/1), St Lawrence Gap (22/1), Our Nest Egg (33/1), Uknowwhatimean (33/1), Alfie Corbitt (40/1), Ratoute Yutty (50/1), Miss Malarky (50/1), Tugboat (66/1), Mary Of De Sorrows (80/1), Thomas Junior (100/1)

Verdict

There's cause for optimism where MIDNIGHT AURORA is concerned, given that she hinted at a revival with cheekpieces refitted at Musselburgh last time, plus she's now 8 lb below last winning mark and the drying ground will also be in her favour. Dan Skelton's charge gets the nod ahead of last-time-out C&D winner One For Dunstan and consistent maiden First Assembly.

  1. MIDNIGHT AURORA
  2. ONE FOR DUNSTAN (IRE)
  3. FIRST ASSEMBLY (IRE)
