Forecast

Christopher Wood (3/1), Faadhel (4/1), Akvavera (7/1), Cuban Heel (8/1), Warburton (8/1), Optimum Time (9/1), Delsheer (9/1), Corazon Espinado (14/1), Deadly Accurate (22/1), Jack Taylor (25/1), Enzo (25/1)

Verdict
Simon Dow won this race last year and CORAZON ESPINADO gives the impression there's still more improvement to come. Christopher Wood is well in on official ratings after a fine run at HQ last week and he rates as the main danger. Akvavera is another who can't be ruled out in a wide open contest on handicap debut.
  1. Corazon Espinado
  2. Christopher Wood
  3. Akvavera
