Forecast

Corazon Espinado (5/2), Belle Meade (4/1), Rebel Assault (11/2), Juanito Chico (7/1), Sir Titan (7/1), Pour La Victoire (8/1), Highland Acclaim (12/1), Dance Teacher (14/1)

Verdict
CORAZON ESPINADO followed a C&D success with a big run in the London Mile final at Kempton, so he appeals as the likeliest winner, for all Juanito Chico would be a big danger if building on a promising start for Stuart Williams at Sandown. Belle Meade ran well over C&D at the Derby meeting, and could bounce back as long as the ground doesn't quicken up significantly.
