Forecasts

Pride Of Priory (5/2), Pride Of America (3/1), Group One Power (8/1), Enfranchise (9/1), Aasheq (10/1), Diderot (11/1), Society Red (12/1), Desert Emperor (14/1), Sarvan (14/1), Restorer (28/1), The Kodi Kid (28/1), Fairmac (28/1), Enigmatic (33/1), Lunar Jet (66/1)

Verdict

Easily one of the least exposed in the line-up, PRIDE OF PRIORY impressed when landing a maiden/handicap at around this trip last year, the way he moved clear from his sole rival at Haydock latterly decidedly likeable. He gets the nod to defy a 6 lb higher mark on return with the prospect of more to come. Enfranchise, who ran well at Brighton recently is a contender too. Diderot and Sarvan complete the shortlist.

  1. PRIDE OF PRIORY
  2. ENFRANCHISE (IRE)
  3. DIDEROT
