Zeyzoun (4/1), Jackpot Royale (9/2), Molls Memory (7/1), Dance Diva (8/1), Dragons Tail (8/1), Dream World (9/1), Daddy's Daughter (14/1), Scorched Breath (14/1), Rum Runner (14/1), Quirky Gertie (14/1), Mountain Rescue (16/1), Foxy Femme (20/1), Moxy Mares (20/1), Gambon (20/1), John Betjeman (28/1), Masham Star (28/1), Azor Ahai (50/1)

Verdict

ZEYZOUN scored over this distance at Epsom last time where he didn't look like surrendering his advantage once he hit the front with 2f to go on heavy ground. He can follow it up here and defy his 4lb rise in the weights. Dragons Tail was denied by just a neck last time over this distance and although he too has 4lb extra on his back here, he should go close one again, while Mountain Rescue can fill the placings as he remains off a workable mark.
  1. Zeyzoun
  2. Dragons Tail
  3. Mountain Rescue
