Forecasts

Cedar Hill (3/1), Miss Amelia (9/2), Mint Gold (5/1), Valence D'Aumont (6/1), Ain't My Fault (6/1), Vengeur De Guye (10/1), Lake Takapuna (14/1), Dr Sanderson (14/1), Baby King (14/1), Ballyvic Boru (25/1), Brelan D'As (33/1)

Verdict

Lots with chances in a very open handicap. CEDAR HILL signalled he's ready to go in again when coming down four out at Ayr recently (still poised to challenge) and is taken to record C&D win number four off an unchanged mark. In-form mare Miss Amelia heads the list of dangers, although both Sedgefield-scorer Valence d'Aumont and C&D winner Ballyvic Boru command plenty of respect too.

  1. CEDAR HILL (IRE)
  2. MISS AMELIA
  3. VALENCE D'AUMONT (FR)
