Forecasts

Soto Sizzler (11/4), Maybe Today (9/2), Not So Sleepy (5/1), Eddystone Rock (6/1), Manjaam (8/1), Reshoun (8/1), Emenem (10/1), Fire Fighting (10/1), Medalla De Oro (16/1), Akamanto (16/1), Guns of Leros (20/1), Mount Tahan (28/1), West Drive (33/1), Noble Expression (50/1)

Verdict

In a fiendishly difficult contest the answer may be the relatively unexposed SOTO SIZZLER who shaped well on return and as a Goodwood winner he should handle the undulations here well. Fellow four-year-old Maybe Today looks the sort who could kick on this season based on her win first time out and others with legitimate chances include Eddystone Rock and Not So Sleepy.
  1. Soto Sizzler
  2. Maybe Today
  3. Eddystone Rock
