Forecast

Elucidation (11/8), Drochaid (5/1), Zumurudee (5/1), Red Ensign (9/1), Solajan (9/1), Total Star (10/1), Curlew River (14/1), Ghayyar (25/1), Plant Pot Power (25/1)

Verdict

A competitive race in which the sole filly in the line up Curlew River looks a most likeable and fast improving previous C&D winner. Her trainer throws her in at the deep end in this contest against colts and geldings, some of whom have competed at Group and Listed level, but she's much respected nevertheless. ELUCIDATION was a shade disappointing at Newmarket last month, but it's early days to be writing off this expensive Derby entrant, and there's almost certainly no horse as talented as Middle Kingdom lurking in this race. Total Star could be vulnerable late in the day over this trip, whilst Zumurudee needs to better a moderate showing in Doha.
  1. Elucidation
  2. Curlew River
  3. Total Star
