Forecasts

Technological (9/4), Wimpole Hall (9/2), Red Force One (5/1), Villette (5/1), Kaser (9/1), Galactic Spirit (10/1), Thaqaffa (14/1), Gawdawpalin (20/1), Jodies Jem (50/1)

Verdict

Galactic Spirit is of obvious interest now he is handicapping, Red Force One is worth keeping an eye on with a view to the future and Villette is considered back at a more realistic level. However, marginal preference is for THAQAFFA, who loves this surface as he showed when winning this race last year and should be ready to give his best after a couple of runs following a lay-off. Wimpole Hall looks sure to run his usual solid race.
