Forecasts

Morando (6/4), Alexios Komnenos (6/1), Sea Wolf (13/2), Intricately (7/1), True Valour (8/1), Music Box (10/1), Custom Cut (12/1), Flight Risk (16/1), Diamond Fields (25/1)

Verdict

MORANDO has done very little wrong in six starts, winning four of them, and Roger Varian's charge was a game winner last month at Windsor on her reappearance in Listed company. This will be tougher but there's every chance she has got more to offer and she can register a first Group-race success in continuing her progress. Sea Wolf has gone well in both starts this term, winning one and close second since, she's sure to appreciate the ground and represents a trainer in good form. At likely bigger odds, the veteran Custom Cut loves it around here and will handle conditions while True Valour (beat Sea Wolf) and Alexios Komnenos are closely matched on their Curragh meeting recently and can get involved.
  1. Morando
