Forecasts

Ottoman Fleet (11/8), Natural World (5/1), Almuhit (5/1), Lionel (6/1), Berkshire Breeze (11/1), Shadowfax (14/1), Double Cherry (18/1), Valsad (28/1), Daiquiri (40/1), Olympic Dream (50/1), Via Serica (100/1), Dirty Barry (100/1)

Verdict

Lots of potential on show, and David Menuisier's son of Lope De Vega LIONEL is taken to emerge on top after shaping really well when a debut second here last autumn. Almuhit also has the benefit of experience and appeals as the pick of the Gosden's duo, with Charlie Appleby's newcomers Natural World and Ottoman Fleet two more highly interesting sorts in a most intriguing maiden.

  1. LIONEL
  2. ALMUHIT (IRE)
  3. NATURAL WORLD (IRE)
