Forecast

Stealth (7/2), Alifax (9/2), Poet's Prince (7/1), Hilborough (7/1), Cherubic (15/2), Sharp Reminder (8/1), Mr Carbonator (8/1), Musbaq (10/1), Skito Soldier (33/1)

Verdict

Three-year-old handicaps at this time of the year are always hard to decipher and this one looks an open heat. There are already three C&D winners in the line-up although all of those look to face stiffer tasks than they have in their wins with Mr Carbonator looking the best of that group. Quite a few that haven’t run here have pedigrees that give encouragement with Alifax and MUSBAQ two that appeal especially the latter who caught the eye last time and makes his handicap debut here. Poet’s Prince is another whose pedigree gives hope that he will act here although he looks to have a stiff mark to cope with. Stealth can also be thrown into the mix coming from a powerful yard along with Sharp Reminder who has run well here before and looks a likely type to win on the AW.
  1. Musbaq
  2. Alifax
  3. Sharp Reminder
