Forecast

Red Armada (15/8), Majaalis (7/2), Posted (5/1), Biometric (8/1), Excellent Magic (8/1), Strict (16/1), Nigel Nott (16/1), City Wanderer (20/1), Cool Possibility (33/1), Reynolds (50/1), Levanter (66/1), Four Feet (66/1), Aiguillette (100/1)

Verdict
Posted is strictly the one to beat on form, but her Newmarket effort hasn't really worked out, and she has disappointed twice since, so she is opposed with RED ARMADA, who has also shown plenty, and still appears likely to go on to better things. Newcomer Majaalis has an excellent pedigree, and is one to note in the market for his shrewd yard.
