Forecast

Next Stage (2/1), Ballet Concerto (11/4), Central Square (7/1), Grapevine (17/2), Playful Sound (10/1), Abareeq (12/1), Dolphin Vista (12/1), Berkshire (14/1), Great Hall (25/1), Bancnuanaheireann (33/1)

Verdict
BALLET CONCERTO won in taking fashion at Doncaster on Lincoln day so with Ryan Moore booked to take the ride once again, and the return to faster ground likely to see him in an even better light, another big run is expected. Next Stage was impressive last time and may be able to build on that while Grapevine wouldn't be without a chance if he could settle better.
