Forecast

Maggie Thunder (6/1), Jo Binney (6/1), Eleuthera (13/2), That's Not Me (8/1), Pulsating (8/1), Lady Alcazar (17/2), Pillar (9/1), Theoneyouare (10/1), Annabelle Rock (14/1), Valquinto (14/1), Ask Delaney (16/1), Dee Sprinter (18/1), Dance Alone (20/1), Otilah (28/1), Sahreej (33/1), Hee Haw (33/1), Cactus Tree (40/1), Keepthebestsideout (40/1), Abby's Magic (50/1), Village Rock (80/1), Rudrama Devi (125/1)

Verdict
Another extremely competitive affair with a few of these hard to rule out completely including Jo Binney who would have claims if the rain came, while Abby's Magic, Maggie Thunder, C&D winner Eleuthera & That's Not Me all towards the head of the shortlist too. It would be dangerous to rule out Pillar who has returned to form recently including when third over 5f at this track 12 days ago off a falling mark. However, a chance is taken on one of the more lightly raced contenders in the field in the shape of LADY ALCAZAR. The selection has shown enough ability in a handful of starts since switched to handicaps to suggest her turn isn't far away.
  1. Lady Alcazar
  2. Pillar
  3. Jo Binney
