Forecasts

Willyorwon't He (3/1), Neenee's Choice (10/3), Top Secret (5/1), Walhaan (11/2), Dogged (7/1), Turntable (11/1), Bakersboy (12/1), Choritzo (18/1)

Verdict

TOP SECRET represents a yard in terrific form and shaped as though ready for the step up to this trip when a strong-finishing second over 7f at Newmarket a fortnight ago. He is marginally preferred to Walhaan, who has slipped to a potentially handy mark and there were positives to glean form his latest effort. Unexposed handicap debutant Neenee's Choice and Willyorwon't He are others to consider.

  1. TOP SECRET
  2. WALHAAN (IRE)
  3. NEENEE'S CHOICE
