Forecast

Country (13/8), Sam Cooke (5/1), Almania (13/2), Dal Horrisgle (7/1), Jeremiah (8/1), Dash Of Spice (17/2), Protected Guest (20/1), Koeman (40/1), Mandarin (40/1)

Verdict
Plenty of likable profiles here but today may finally be ALMANIA's day after an excellent third to a handicap snip at the Royal Meeting on his stable/seasonal bow last month. Dangers aplenty here however with recent Newmarket winner Country heading a strong William Haggas challenge. Lightly raced dual-winner Sam Cooke is another worthy of significant merit.
  1. Almania
  2. Country
  3. Sam Cooke
