Forecast

Epaulement (15/8), Society Red (13/2), Mutamaded (7/1), Everything For You (8/1), Poet's Prince (17/2), Anythingtoday (10/1), Appointed (11/1), Ayutthaya (14/1), Mooltazem (20/1), King's Pavilion (20/1), Scottish Summit (25/1)

Verdict

Most of these look weighted to the limit and suggesting one as being ahead of the assessor would be a minefield; Poet's Prince epitomises the theory as he's never won from a mark this high but has started to receive some respite from the handicapper all the same. He can go close; as can Epaulement, who is open to further progress but has to shoulder top weight. Therefore, preference is given to EVERYTHING FOR YOU in the hope that he can recapture his best now he's been under the knife for wind surgery. Mutamaded won this last year and is also feared.
  1. Everything For You
  2. Poet's Prince
  3. Epaulement
