Forecasts

Star Caliber (5/2), Alfred Boucher (6/1), Topanticipation (13/2), Parachute (13/2), Enfranchise (7/1), Cockalorum (17/2), Haseefah (9/1), Haliphon (10/1), Euchen Glen (11/1), Desert Emperor (20/1), Heights Of Abraham (25/1), Sir Chauvelin (33/1)

Verdict

The fitting of a hood meant that STAR CALIBER was able to conserve his energy much better on his final couple of starts at 3, and having produced a career-best at York when last seen 9 months ago, Andrew Balding's front-runner could prove tough to peg back with the well-touted Harry Davies on board. Enfranchaise, Topanticipation and Haliphon are just a handful of dangers in an ultra-competitive contest.
