Forecast

Casual Reply (11/8), Pianissimo (6/4), Tajawoz (6/1), Persuer (10/1), Constraint (28/1), King's Counsel (40/1), Harbour Front (50/1), Argent Bleu (100/1)

Verdict
Persuer was sent off favourite here last start but the tactical nature of the small field proved against her and she's likely to improve up in distance. Pianissimo is a strong traveller who has some of the best form on offer but he really should have won a race by now. He'll be thereabouts once again but at the weights the debut of CASUAL REPLY matches that level of form and she's only going to improve up to this distance.
