Forecasts

Gabr (11/8), Big Country (10/3), Another Touch (7/2), Ventura Knight (7/1), Salateen (14/1), Secret Art (25/1)

Verdict

Salateen is in good form and is well capable of mixing it in this company but would arguably prefer 7f. He may need some help to get home. Last year's winner Another Touch on the other hand likely needs a strong gallop, and might get that from Secret Art. Gabr ran a cracker in this grade at Newmarket recently and has fair claims on that showing but BIG COUNTRY also went down fighting in a Listed event at Sandown over further recently and will suited dropping back. The cheekpieces might see him eke out a bit a bit more and land this pot. Ventura Knight is worth another try in Listed class down in trip, but is turned out for the fourth time in 26 days.
