Forecast

Poet's Prince (4/1), Court House (5/1), Ship Of The Fen (6/1), George (8/1), Book of Dreams (17/2), Indomeneo (9/1), Shuhood (11/1), Connect (12/1), Corazon Espinado (14/1), Macaque (14/1), Westbrook Bertie (16/1)

Verdict
CORAZON ESPINADO gives the impression he will appreciate this extra distance and arrives in excellent form. Court House is an intriguing runner back down in a handicap while Book Of Dreams looks well-handicapped if he can return to form.
  1. Corazon Espinado
  2. Court House
  3. Book of Dreams
