Forecast

Solstice Star (7/2), Steel Bob (9/2), Juge Et Parti (5/1), Holdbacktheriver (7/1), Smart Boy (7/1), For Carmel (14/1), Albert D'olivate (14/1), Doesyourdogbite (16/1), Chloe's Court (25/1), Echo Watt (25/1), Topper Thornton (33/1), Western Climate (33/1), Eddy (40/1)

Verdict

Doesyourdogbite and Steel Bob are interesting runners for big yards returning from a break. Both are worth monitoring in the market at this level but SOLSTICE STAR has nothing to prove regarding fitness. A 3lb rise for a return to form over C&D looks generous given the marks he has raced off in the past against superior rivals. Chloe's Court and Smart Boy are open to improvement now tackling this trip for the first time.
  1. Solstice Star
  2. Smart Boy
  3. Chloe's Court
