Forecast

Blue Mist (3/1), Game Player (4/1), Hortzadar (11/2), Nicholas T (7/1), Waarif (17/2), Universal Gleam (10/1), Sha La La La Lee (10/1), Just Hiss (10/1), Club Wexford (14/1), Banksea (40/1), Carry On Deryck (66/1)

Verdict

A wide open contest but the tentative nod goes to BLUE MIST who has the form to win this race and is still open to improvement. Game Player is respected and was unlucky last time out at Goodwood. Nicholas T could go well at a decent price now he is looking very well handicapped. Others to consider are Sha La La La Lee and Club Wexford
  1. Blue Mist
  2. Nicholas T
  3. Game Player
