Forecasts

Limato (6/4), Massaat (11/2), Dabyah (6/1), Dutch Connection (15/2), Gifted Master (9/1), Cougar Mountain (16/1), Mix And Mingle (25/1), True Valour (25/1), Rehana (33/1), Absolutely So (33/1), Gordon Lord Byron (66/1)

Verdict

LIMATO wasn't at his best when last seen at Goodwood but his prior efforts in Group 1 company give him leading claims here, even if he's a little better over 6f. Massaat wasn't disgraced in a Group 1 last time but conceding a penalty to these rivals may be a tough ask. Dabyah was a shade disappointing last time out but she's been given time to recover from that effort and may do better while Dutch Connection will appreciate this drop in class and is in with an each-way chance.
  1. Limato
  2. Dabyah
  3. Dutch Connection
