Forecasts

Pentland Hills (11/4), East End Girl (11/2), Sulochana (7/1), Mercian Hymn (7/1), Kasperenko (10/1), Maketh Believeth (10/1), Tralee Hills (12/1), Ghadbbaan (12/1), Rick Blaine (14/1), Tendentious (14/1), Red Derek (16/1), Lady Percival (16/1), Good Soul (18/1), Order Of St John (20/1), Clifftop Heaven (50/1), Alghazaal (50/1)

Verdict

PENTLAND HILLS has clearly had a few issues but a Flat mark in the 60s could obviously underestimate him if he still possesses anything like the ability he showed over hurdles a few years ago. Mercian Hymn is consistent in the main and could go well stepping up in trip. Tendentious and Sulochana also make the shortlist.

  1. PENTLAND HILLS (IRE)
  2. MERCIAN HYMN
  3. TENDENTIOUS
