Forecast

To Dibba (9/2), Torcello (5/1), First Nation (11/2), Cape Coast (6/1), Rake's Progress (7/1), Londinium (10/1), Seafarer (10/1), Glenys The Menace (12/1), Mam'selle (14/1), Duke Of Bronte (16/1), Melting Dew (16/1), Speedo Boy (16/1), Anythingtoday (16/1), Bear Valley (25/1), Sea Fox (25/1), Mister Belvedere (50/1)

Verdict
William Haggas won this two years ago and MAM'SELLE may be the one to side with in a competitive contest. The filly is less exposed than most in here and she looks capable of handling a hike in the weights. Torcello is another progressive sort arriving on a hat-trick bid but it's Londinium who may prove the main danger for last year's winning trainer.
