Forecast

Kynren (11/4), Casanova (6/1), Ripp Orf (7/1), Raising Sand (7/1), Bedouin's Story (9/1), Battered (12/1), Greenside (14/1), Escobar (14/1), So Beloved (14/1), Summerghand (16/1), Makzeem (16/1), Qaysar (20/1), Lake Volta (20/1), Silver Line (25/1), Cold Stare (33/1), Keyser Soze (33/1), Remarkable (33/1), Raydiance (40/1)

Verdict

Not an easy event to sort out with last years first and second Raising Sand and Ripp Orf returning to meet again with the former having had the better season and likely to go well again even off a 12lb higher mark; his affinity for this track well known. Casanova is a handicapper on the up although last time out winners don’t have a great record in the race. The contest has also attracted some of the usual suspects like Escobar, Kynren and Summerghand all of whom deserve to be on the premises. BATTERED looks just the type for a race like this, he arrives here lightly-raced off a good mark and won’t mind the ground. Cold Stare makes most appeal of those at 25-1 plus.
