Forecast

Musalsal (6/1), Guiding (7/1), Whatharm (8/1), We'll Go Again (9/1), Munfallet (10/1), Acari (12/1), Munaajaat (12/1), Raffaello (14/1), Mona Bell (14/1), Blackstone Cliff (14/1), Kudbegood (16/1), Dare To Flare (16/1), Kinch (16/1), Lumsden (16/1), Pursuit Of Magic (16/1), Buzz Killington (16/1), Avalanche (20/1), Der Mc (20/1), Gizi Gazelle (20/1), Gougane Barra (20/1), Guanabara Bay (20/1), Rememberthetitans (22/1), Small Town Boy (25/1), Ploughland (25/1), Taakhy (25/1), Snow Hope (33/1), Alpine Peak (33/1), Loughanlea Lass (50/1)

Verdict
If the forecast rain does fall, plenty of these will have something to prove on it, and it would be wide open. Kudbegood handles some cut fine, and looks sure to run his race again, so should be there at the finish. Guiding is another that brings some solid form to the table and despite a moderate draw, could take a hand in the finish but there are some potential improvers in here, and BUZZ KILLINGTON, who on breeding will love this step up to a mile, is taken to score in his first handicap. Pursuit Of Magic may get back on track and Loughanlea Lass is worth a look in the market.
