Forecast

Thunderbolt Rocks (9/4), Cross My Mind (11/4), Rake's Progress (7/1), Gododdin (8/1), Quantatmental (9/1), Hareeq (16/1), Amlad (16/1), Briardale (18/1), Groveman (25/1), Ad Libitum (40/1), Akamanto (40/1), Mutadaffeq (80/1)

Verdict
A competitive contest with plenty of the major southern-based yards represented. Sir Michael Stoute saddles the handicap newcomer Hareeq, who often does himself few favours with a tendency to start tardily, while Hugo Palmer is doubly represented by Gododdin and the more interesting lightly-raced (& AW unbeaten) Thunderbolt Rocks. However, it'll take a brave soul to oppose the Ralph Beckett-trained CROSS MY MIND. This filly has a very likeable attitude, and showed her rivals a clean pair of heels when scooting home by 4L over C&D last month. A 7lb rise in the weights (in a slightly more competitive race) doesn't appear enough to thwart her positive momentum.
  1. Cross My Mind
  2. Groveman
  3. Thunderbolt Rocks
