Forecast

Playa Blanca (5/4), Tactical Manoeuvre (4/1), Stage Summit (6/1), Dalaman (8/1), Flou Artsistique (14/1), Menapian (20/1), Caro Des Flos (25/1), Lamanver Bel Ami (25/1), True Thoughts (40/1), Just Go For It (100/1)

Verdict

PLAYA BLANCA has won three of his 12 starts over timber and arrives here on the back of a couple of wins this month at Warwick and more recently at Market Rasen on Sunday. The five-year-old can continue his progression at the expense of another multiple winner, victorious over C&D Tactical Manoeuvre for trainer Jeremy Scott. The Rebecca Curtis-trained Dalaman can go well under significant jockey booking of Richard Johnson while Stage Summit and the J P McManus-owned Flou Artsistique can compete for remaining prize money.
  1. Playa Blanca
  2. Tactical Manoeuvre
  3. Stage Summit
