Forecasts

Azzuri (5/2), Magic Saint (5/1), Duke Of Navan (8/1), Ozzie The Oscar (17/2), Forest Bihan (17/2), Lillington (9/1), Monsieur Co (12/1), Saint Leo (12/1), Veinard (12/1), Mcgroarty (20/1), Nuts Well (20/1), Dandridge (25/1), Vosne Romanee (28/1)

Verdict

VOSNE ROMANEE appears to have been saved for this since winning nicley at Ascot in November. He's only 2lb higher and goes well fresh. Both Lillington and Monseiur Co have been firing in the wins of late and there could be more to come but this is a tougher test. Forest Bihan and Veinard won't be far away while Duke Of Navan and Mcgroarty, stable companion of the selection, also enter calculations.
  1. Vosne Romanee
  2. Forest Bihan
  3. Mcgroarty
