Aldaary (10/3), Fresh (11/2), River Nymph (6/1), Tomfre (8/1), Aratus (8/1), Escobar (9/1), Star Of Orion (12/1), Al Rufaa (12/1), Ascension (16/1), Documenting (16/1), Symbolize (22/1), Fundamental (22/1), Accidental Agent (25/1), Pierre Lapin (33/1), Oo De Lally (33/1), Qaysar (40/1), Young Fire (40/1), Mums Tipple (66/1)

Verdict

A typically competitive renewal of this valuable handicap. RIVER NYMPH enjoyed his finest hour to date when landing the C&D Victoria Cup during the spring and makes plenty of appeal on the back of an encouraging recent effort in a Newbury listed race, which was his first run for four months. Al Rufaa and Fresh both look very dangerous, while 3-y-os Aldaary and Aratus are also shortlisted.

  1. RIVER NYMPH
  2. AL RUFAA (FR)
  3. FRESH
