Forecasts

Sceau Royal (2/1), Hitman (85/40), Funambule Sivola (9/4), Editeur Du Gite (6/1), Sky Pirate (8/1)

Verdict

A case can be made for all of the quartet, but FUNAMBULE SIVOLA is a really likeable sort who still has more to offer at the minimum trip and he is taken to follow up his recent Doncaster success. Last year's victor Sceau Royal wasn't at his best over hurdles last time but still rates a big threat back chasing, while both Sky Pirate and Hitman can have a say too in a fascinating Game Spirit.

  1. FUNAMBULE SIVOLA (FR)
  2. SCEAU ROYAL (FR)
  3. SKY PIRATE
