Forecasts

Midnights Legacy (3/1), Solent Gateway (5/1), Soapy Stevens (13/2), Winter Reprise (13/2), Boss Power (15/2), Mascat (15/2), Farhan (15/2), Aaddeey (14/1), State Of Bliss (16/1), Arenas Del Tiempo (22/1), Haliphon (25/1), Restorer (25/1)

Verdict

SOLENT GATEWAY shaped as if ahead of his mark on debut for Hugo Palmer, then failed to settle in the Chester Cup, so he's worth a chance to gain his second course win under a useful claimer. Mascat was doing some good late work at Ascot last time, so he's considered a threat, while Boss Power is respected on the back of a luckless outing.

  1. SOLENT GATEWAY (IRE)
  2. MASCAT
