Forecasts

George Villiers (6/4), Breath Caught (5/2), Prime Minister (3/1), Ostilio (6/1), Accessor (7/1), Compulsive (8/1), Rare Groove (10/1), Mom Said (50/1), Chikoko Trail (50/1), Pass Mark (50/1), Percy Prosecco (100/1)

Verdict

Breath Caught shrugged off a slightly disappointing debut to go close last time and his Sandown run is probably the best form on offer here, so he is very much respected. However, GEORGE VILLIERS did equally well in context, in that he ran green but was not far off overcoming that on debut at the same track. He may just have more improvement in him for that and is preferred. Prime Minister looks next best of those to have raced, while newcomer Ostilio is well worth checking out in the market and potential improver Compulsive another to whom the same applies.
