Forecasts

The King Of Brega (5/2), Polished Steel (4/1), Smiling Eliza (5/1), Like An Open Book (5/1), Ask Nile (10/1), Youngnedofthehill (12/1), Lareena (14/1), Western Boy (16/1), Tourboy (16/1), Paolozzi (20/1)

Verdict

With Ask Nile and Lareena possibly taking each other on for the lead in the early stages it could set the race up for a couple held up to come with a late run. C&D winner LIKE AN OPEN BOOK can get the better of the solid and consistent veteran, The King Of Brega, who, at the age of 12 is another successful over C&D. Smiling Eliza is capable of bouncing back in this contest in first-time cheekpieces.
  1. Like An Open Book
  2. The King Of Brega
  3. Smiling Eliza
