Forecast

First Winter (4/7), Back From Dubai (9/2), Kimberley (11/2), Photograph (13/2), Coincidence (7/1), Besides (33/1), Prince Alex (33/1), Angels Roc (50/1), My Sheila (66/1), Sposabella (80/1), Navajo Eagle (80/1), Dromiskin (100/1), Speculation (100/1)

Verdict
Godolphin appear to hold the aces here with BACK FROM DUBAI narrowly preferred to First Winter. Both are equipped wth first-time cheekpieces but the selection did little wrong last time when third here despite being hit on the nose by a rival jockey's whip. He can gain compensation here. First Winter caught a tartar when second last time and can go close again if ridden with a touch more restraint. Kimberley progressed nicely from her first to second run and there could be more improvement to come as she is bred to appreciate this longer trip. Concidence is bred to be decent but was never at the races on debut after starting slowly. He can do better this time.
  1. Back From Dubai
  2. First Winter
  3. Kimberley
