Forecast

Billesdon Brook (10/3), Veejay (11/2), Gold Town (6/1), Cosmopolitan Queen (7/1), Poetic Steps (7/1), Tangled (7/1), Starlight Mystery (10/1), Poet's Prince (11/1), Cheeky Rascal (16/1), Jedi Master (16/1), She Believes (16/1), Royal Household (20/1), Barbarianatthegate (25/1), Alifax (33/1), Chai Chai (33/1), Central City (33/1), Devil's Cowboy (33/1), Lucifugous (33/1)

Verdict

Billesdon Brook can't be ignored and he's due to go up 9lb when the handicapper has his say but she's far from certain to enjoy this ground. One who is proven in conditions is POETIC STEPS and her trainer had the first three home in this race last year. Veejay is still entirely unexposed and arrives here attempting to defend his unbeaten record; he looks up to recording at least a placed effort.
