Forecast

Baashiq (10/3), Pilgrim's Treasure (7/2), Music Seeker (9/2), Big Tour (11/2), Bedouin (7/1), Pivoine (7/1), Rake's Progress (8/1), Flying North (20/1), Jackhammer (20/1)

Verdict
The Godolphin duo Big Tour and Pligrim’s Treasure are to be respected here although the former does have to prove himself on the surface. Baashiq may well appreciate a return to a softer surface after showing up well on his handicap debut with Music Seeker looking interesting on what he’s shown so far. Rake’s Progress is a consistent sort but this mark may prove beyond him and despite the form figures this year PIVOINE is the suggestion. He’s not really had things go his way this year and the extra distance here should be in his favour with improvement still left to come.
  1. Pivoine
  2. Music Seeker
  3. Pilgrim's Treasure
