Forecast

Edinburgh Castle (7/2), Look Closely (9/2), Holy Kingdom (5/1), Dubai Instinct (6/1), Skymax (7/1), Severance (10/1), Durrell (12/1), Grandee (16/1), Chesterfield (22/1), Gas Monkey (33/1), Jersey Wonder (40/1), Stamford Raffles (50/1)

Verdict
Plenty with chances and a narrow vote goes to HOLY KINGDOM who ran a number of good races last term and on whom James Doyle looks a signifcant booking. Edinburgh Castle gets weight all round on his handicap bow and may do well this term having been gelded since his last run. Gas Monkey improved throughout last campaign and a bold show is not ruled out from him or from topweights Skymax and Look Closely. Dubai Instinct is another who may well be right on the premises.
  1. Holy Kingdom
  2. Look Closely
  3. Edinburgh Castle
