Forecasts

Flavius Titus (4/1), Spanish City (9/2), Embour (6/1), Aces (7/1), Wentworth Falls (8/1), Staxton (17/2), Louie de Palma (9/1), Reputation (16/1), Vibrant Chords (16/1), Burford Brown (16/1), Raucous (16/1), Teruntum Star (20/1), Merhoob (22/1), Swiss Knight (25/1), Flying Pursuit (25/1)

Verdict

SPANISH CITY wasn't seen to best effect from a very wide draw at Epsom last week, but he did well in the circumstances, and the return to this stiffer track will suit. He can go close assuming he gets the strong pace he needs. Wentworth Falls is in the form of his life right now, and is feared, as is Newbury winner Embour and the selection's stablemate Flavius Titus.
