Forecasts

Luxford (11/4), Sandy Shores (11/2), Ashazuri (6/1), Lesanti (7/1), Born To Please (8/1), Dragon Dream (8/1), Noble Ballad (8/1), Armagnac (8/1), Junoesque (16/1), Damo (16/1), Desert Song (25/1), Shamonix (33/1)

Verdict

Luxford is the obvious starting point coming here in search of a turf hat-trick. He was game to record his second Brighton success last time out but has gone up another 4lb as a result and might just struggle to keep the winning run in tact. That could prove true if SANDY SHORES gets her way in front again. Runner-up in her previous two, Brian Meehan's charge could be very dangerous if getting a soft advantage in this apprentice contest and is taken to open her account here. Born To Please was much better last time when dropped to this sort of trip and can go well once more while Ashazuri looks most likely of the remainder ahead of Armagnac.
