Forecast

Inconceivable (5/2), Waterville Dancer (3/1), What Wonders Weave (11/2), Moabit (8/1), Lord Huntingdon (8/1), Cotton Club (10/1), Rahmah (12/1), Age Of Wisdom (12/1), Ivanhoe (14/1), The Salmon Man (16/1), Benbecula (25/1), Tyrolean (25/1), Silver Sea (50/1)

Verdict
INCONCEIVABLE is less exposed than most of her rivals here and ran well when not beaten far over an extended 1m5f last time out. The selection shaped as if this slight step up in trip would suit on that occasion and she can take this with Irish raider What Wonders Weave, already a winner this season taken to claim second on her first attempt at this trip. Of the remainder Rahmah ran well to dead-heat over 1m2f last time out and while this step up in distance represents an unknown he has placed over 1m4f in the past.
