Forecast

So Hoity Toity (4/1), Know The Truth (11/2), Evening Hill (6/1), Revel (13/2), Stararchitecture (8/1), Habbad (10/1), Zebulon (12/1), Fastar (12/1), Fastnet Spin (14/1), Tullinahoo (14/1), Native Soldier (16/1), Milburn Jack (16/1), Tidal Watch (20/1), Beaconsfield (20/1), Olympic Legend (33/1), Red Emperor (33/1)

Verdict

A tough race to get a handle on with so many of these three-year-old's open to any amount of improvement but Andrew Balding won this race 12 months ago and his Know The Truth has to go on any shortlist after an eye-catching handicap debut over an inadequate 7f. Even so, equal encouragement could be gleaned from SO HOITY TOITY's opening effort for Hughie Morrison at Newmarket and, with Silvestre De Sousa now providing added assistance from the saddle, this prize may be within range. Starchitecture, Habbad and Revel are also of interest.
  1. So Hoity Toity
  2. Know The Truth
