Andok (3/1), X Rated (4/1), Berlusca (4/1), Ski Blast (5/1), Channel Packet (6/1), Save The Bees (8/1), Ascot Week (8/1), Sumner Beach (12/1), Aljunood (25/1)

Verdict

A number of these horses arrive in excellent shape with their respective trainers no doubt more than happy to utilise the claims of these apprentices riders in order to negate penalties and weight rises etc. Ascot Week is on a hat-trick, but vulnerable stepped back up in trip, whilst Channel Packet could progress now finally finding a winning groove. Both X Rated and the unlucky in running Berlusca are closely matched, but the pick is 2017 winner SKI BLAST who should be ready to do himself justice after blowing away the cobwebs over an inadequate trip at Nottingham.
