Forecasts

Count Calabash (9/2), Thundering Blue (5/1), Speedo Boy (11/2), Humble Hero (6/1), Dash Of Spice (6/1), Koeman (7/1), Western Duke (10/1), Twin Star (10/1), Machine Learner (11/1), Master Singer (12/1), Manjaam (16/1), Exceeding Power (16/1), C'Est No Mour (20/1), Fearsome (20/1), Great Sound (33/1), Croquembouche (50/1)

Verdict

DASH OF SPICE is a fascinating candidate in the opener. He went well for a long way at Epsom last time before he was run down late on and he has the potential to improve now tried over this longer trip. C'Est No Mour should improve for the fitting of first-time headgear while Koeman represents a yard in form and will improve conditions if there's no rain.
