Forecast

Austrian School (15/8), Istanbul Sultan (5/2), Berkshire Royal (9/2), Shuhood (6/1), Neverbeen To Paris (10/1), Morning Wonder (16/1), Heart Of Soul (25/1)

Verdict

The piece of form that saw AUSTRIAN SCHOOL and Berkshire Royal battle it over course and distance two runs back may prove strongest here and preference is for the former to confirm the form. Istanbul Sultan could be the danger now tried over this longer trip.
  1. Austrian School
  2. Berkshire Royal
  3. Istanbul Sultan
