Betting

Forecast

Saroog (9/4), Ulster (9/2), Ship Of The Fen (13/2), Celestial Force (15/2), Artarmon (8/1), Master Archer (12/1), Busy Street (14/1), Fairy Tale (14/1), Shabeeb (14/1), Nakeeta (14/1)

Verdict

SAROOG remains unexposed despite being a five-year-old and the nature of his run at Newbury suggests there is plenty of improvement left off a fair mark and is already proven over stamina-sapping trips. Ulster may be able to continue his progression if his Ascot Stakes mishap can be forgiven given his tendency to thrive in high-class staying handicaps, while Artarmon may be coming to hand based on his Kempton victory last season and would be dangerous to ignore, as well as Fairy Tale, who remains severely unexposed in the British racing sphere.
