Forecast

Via Serendipity (7/2), Bless Him (7/2), Zwayyan (8/1), Poet's Society (8/1), Medahim (8/1), Shady Mccoy (9/1), Across Dubai (9/1), Fire Brigade (10/1), What's The Story (10/1), Mythical Madness (14/1), Red Tea (16/1), Majestic Moon (33/1)

Verdict

A competitive renewal of this contest but MEDAHIM seemed to have a bit in hand when winning at the Goodwood Festival last time out off top weight and it's likely he's still well-handicapped, particularly over this extra furlong. What's The Story will appreciate a return to quick ground here but Via Serendipity may be the main danger given his consistency in recent starts and he ran well on the straight mile here last month when fourth of 27.
