Forecast

Makzeem (5/1), Midhmaar (11/2), Timeless Art (11/2), Greenside (6/1), El Vip (6/1), Laidback Romeo (8/1), Mountain Rescue (17/2), Sir Roderic (9/1), Munaashid (10/1), Alejandro (16/1), Secret Art (16/1), Forceful Appeal (25/1), Kingston Kurrajong (25/1), Cricklewood Green (66/1)

Verdict

MIDHMAAR has been largely disappointing but his comeback run at Nottingham was full of promise and Jim Crowley prefers his chance over Munaashid who has his first start for a new yard. Makzeem is another who hasn't fulfilled his potential yet but there's likely to be more to come from the half-brother of Al Kazeem. Forceful Appeal is a game sort who should run his race and Alejandro should get his optimum conditions.
  1. Midhmaar
  2. Alejandro
  3. Forceful Appeal
