Forecast

Valley of Rocks (2/1), Evening Hill (5/2), Sonnetist (4/1), Queen Moon (8/1), Zulu (10/1), Kyshoni (18/1), Act Swiftly (25/1)

Verdict

VALLEY OF ROCKS is the clear form pick in this having contested a Leicester maiden won by the 100 rated Utmost and where the second and third were both subsequent winners at Newmarket. None of those with previous experience can match that with Evening Hill finishing just ahead of a 64 rated horse at Kempton and Zulu soudly beaten behind a 67 rated filly at Salisbury. Queen Moon and Sonnetist represent powerful yards on their respective debuts but neither have pedigrees that set the pulse racing.
  1. Valley of Rocks

  3. Sonnetist
