Betting

Forecast

Mesophere (9/2), Solent Meads (5/1), Tailor's Row (6/1), Peace And Plenty (13/2), Chicago Star (7/1), Evening Hill (9/1), Zoffany Bay (9/1), Mont Royal (9/1), Pinnata (12/1), Discovered (12/1), Characterized (12/1), Quinteo (20/1), Marilyn (25/1), Mulsanne Chase (66/1)

Verdict

SOLENT MEADS has come into great form on the all-weather in his last two starts including a C&D victory last time out and a 4lb rise seems fair. There could be plenty more to come from him on the Polytrack given his age and profile, and with George Downing (who knows him well) in the saddle again, everything looks set for another big run. The lightly-raced Mesophere and Chicago Star, provided she stays the trip, are others who could go close.
  1. Solent Meads
  2. Mesophere
  3. Chicago Star
