Forecasts

Lady Isabel (5/2), Das Kapital (5/2), Ruskin Red (5/1), Percy Prosecco (6/1), Seventeen O Four (8/1), Frozen Waters (16/1), Nabhan (16/1), Silastar (22/1), Stamford Raffles (28/1), Proton (33/1), Grandscape (40/1)

Verdict

French-recruit SEVENTEEN O FOUR improved for the step up to around 1½m when scoring twice on testing ground for Grant Tuer in the spring and is fancied to extend than winning run to 3 on his return for new trainer David Pipe. Lady Isabel is feared most with Simon Walker doing the steering. Silastar would also enter the reckoning if the betting suggests he's fancied on first start for Gary Moore.
