Forecasts

Weebill (6/4), Shalakar (3/1), Battle Of Ideas (3/1), Big Difference (10/1), Royal Magic (10/1), Merry Milan (25/1), Midnight Trouble (25/1), Langness (25/1), Vetoncall (33/1), Cuban Pete (66/1), Touchy Subject (100/1), Lara Trot (100/1), Prince Carn (100/1)

Verdict

Solid form is fairly thin on the ground in this event and the longer trip may finally bring about the necessary improvement for the consistent SHALAKAR. Battle of Ideas won't be far away but does have to give away his winner's penalty, as too does Royal Magic who will be better suited by this trip than 3m last time. Weebill won last time making heavy weather of it but a better show is by no means ruled out in this better race. Big Difference is an interesting recruit and won't have to be a world beater to figure while Midnight Trouble represents last year's winning stable.
