Betting

Forecast

Desert Explorer (3/1), Meteor Light (7/2), Hernandes (7/2), Lord Commander (4/1), Armagnac (4/1), Harmonise (9/2), Khitaamy (25/1), Wicker (33/1), La Goulue (100/1)

Verdict

This could go to DESERT EXPLORER, who has run two fair races so far, including when beaten only relatively narrowly at Bath last time out. This should be easier race for him and he comes up against some unexciting maidens and some unlikely newcomers. Those who could have a say include Meteor Light, who met with trouble in-running on debut at Sandown last August and should go better here if overcoming the absence, and Armagnac, who has improved since some lackluster early runs, but needs to transfer the best of his form onto turf here.
  1. Desert Explorer
  2. Meteor Light
  3. Armagnac
