Forecasts

Midnight Jewel (9/4), Princess Midnight (3/1), Anightinlambourn (5/1), Cape Robin (7/1), Easkey Lad (8/1), Abaya Du Mathan (10/1), Old Harry Rocks (11/1), Willcollins (18/1), Gosuatri (18/1), Whoshotwho (28/1), Ensel Du Perche (33/1), Storm Rising (40/1)

Verdict

PRINCESS MIDNIGHT looks better than ever under a change of tactics this season and may prove hard to catch again despite another rise. She can complete a C&D hat-trick at the main expense of progressive-hurdler Midnight Jewel, who should make a chaser. Abaya du Mathan completes the shortlist back down in class.

  1. PRINCESS MIDNIGHT
  2. MIDNIGHT JEWEL
  3. ABAYA DU MATHAN (FR)
