Forecasts

Fortamour (13/8), Manigordo (9/2), Twilight Secret (11/2), Shallow Hal (13/2), Mark's Choice (7/1), Dream Composer (15/2), Imperium Blue (17/2), Cottam Lane (25/1), Flying Pursuit (33/1)

Verdict

MANIGORDO was successful second time out last season and is taken to repeat the dose this time round. The heavy ground was surely to blame for his low-key reappearance in the C&D handicap won by Fortamour last month and conditions will be more suitable on this occasion. Fortamour is likely to give another good account off this 5 lb higher mark, and he is feared most ahead of Dream Composer and Twilight Secret.

  1. MANIGORDO (USA)
  2. FORTAMOUR (IRE)
  3. DREAM COMPOSER (FR)
