Forecasts

Darasso (13/8), Annamix (7/4), Koshari (2/1), Battleoverdoyen (7/2), Samcro (4/1), Ben Dundee (11/2), Phoenix Way (10/1), Best Behavior (40/1), Jack Hackett (50/1)

Verdict

PHOENIX WAY has struggled both starts since making a winning chase debut at Warwick in November, but his sights are lowered now and this British raider remains with potential as a chaser. Darasso and Koshari fared best of the clutch of these that contested the Plate on Wednesday, finishing fifth and sixth respectively, and they rate the main dangers.

  1. PHOENIX WAY (IRE)
  2. DARASSO (FR)
  3. KOSHARI (FR)
