Forecast

Kynren (7/1), Cape Byron (8/1), Blue Mist (8/1), Glorious Journey (9/1), Ripp Orf (10/1), Presidential (10/1), Kaeso (14/1), George Of Hearts (14/1), Raising Sand (16/1), Lake Volta (16/1), Caradoc (16/1), Kimifive (18/1), Qaysar (20/1), Sanaadh (20/1), Straight Right (20/1), Remarkable (20/1), Hajjam (25/1), Alemaratalyoum (25/1), Zap (33/1), Taurean Star (33/1), Cardsharp (33/1), Green Power (33/1), Nicholas T (40/1), Via Serendipity (40/1), Above The Rest (50/1), Gallipoli (66/1), Comin' Through (66/1)

Verdict

RIPP ORF has an excellent record at Ascot, beaten by only three horses in four big-field handicaps and he can bounce back to form after a couple of runs elsewhere at a mile this year. He was behind Kynren in the Lincoln, and that rival must be respected having run up a series of creditable handicap performances. Raising Sand and Presidential represent syndicate king Nick Bradley, and both have solid claims on the pick of their efforts in 2018.
  1. Ripp Orf
  2. Kynren
  3. Presidential
