Forecasts

Honestlyntrufully (5/2), Gerard Mentor (11/4), Good Impression (7/2), Appreciate (6/1), Eventful (7/1), Yaazaain (9/1), Military Tactic (12/1), Estate Italiana (16/1), Duke Of Luckley (18/1), Canal Rocks (28/1), Antidote (50/1)

Verdict

If GOOD IMPRESSION hasn't suffered any ill effects from a late fall at Ffos Las then he looks the way to go here as he looked set to win again when coming down and races off the same mark here. Gerard Mentor could pose the chief threat if returning from a break in the same form as when last seen in the autumn. Duke of Luckley is a possible improver in handicaps and also makes the shortlist.

  1. GOOD IMPRESSION
  2. GERARD MENTOR (FR)
  3. DUKE OF LUCKLEY (IRE)
