Forecasts

Raa Atoll (4/6), Occupy (7/1), Elector (12/1), Loveisili (16/1), Morning Wonder (16/1), Tiffin Top (20/1), Bon Scotte (20/1), Phoenician Star (20/1), Scaramanga (20/1), Mazboon (28/1), Hamlul (33/1), Spanish Archer (50/1), Sacred Warrior (66/1), Heavens Align (100/1), Charlie Dove (250/1)

Verdict

A race that should prove to be educational viewing with plenty of nice prospects for the future here. Raa Atoll is one of two that his trainer John Gosden runs in the race and his first race was a taking one but that form has taken a couple of knocks since and it may pay to look elsewhere for the winner. All of the penalised runners still have scope to progress again Elector looking the pick of that quartet. Roger Varian has two nice chances here and MAZBOON appears his best chance of landing this prize with much more expected on his second start. Hamlul and Sacred Warrior are the two newcomers to watch in the market.
