Forecast

Blue Mist (9/2), Eshaasy (5/1), Mutamaasik (8/1), Ebury (8/1), Chiefofchiefs (10/1), Cliffs Of Capri (12/1), Arbalet (12/1), Shelir (14/1), Vale Of Kent (14/1), Gin Palace (16/1), Spanish City (20/1), Keyser Soze (22/1), Blackheath (25/1), Cardsharp (28/1), Jack's Point (33/1), Habub (50/1), Kasbaan (80/1), King Of Tonga (80/1), No Nonsense (80/1), Cold Stare (100/1)

Verdict

Plenty to consider, as is the norm with such races. Arbalet has been shaping up well for David O'Meara and is likely to go close, as is Blue Mist, who caught the eye with a luckless effort at the Royal meeting here, but he can't afford to blow the start like he did there. BLACKHEATH was behind a few of these in the Bunbury Cup at Newmarket a fortnight ago, but he was stopped badly in his run there, and is better judged on a cosy win at Yarmouth, and he's a definite player at a working man's price.
  1. Blackheath
  2. Blue Mist
  3. Arbalet
