Forecast

Musalsal (5/1), Blackstone Cliff (5/1), Harvey Specter (11/2), New Vocation (8/1), Pempie (9/1), Throwaway Line (10/1), Vita Veritas (11/1), Loingseoir (12/1), Lady Arona (12/1), Gatsby Cap (16/1), Arctic Blaze (20/1), Mother's Approach (20/1), Slainte And Thanks (20/1), Rememberthetitans (22/1), Tio Esteban (25/1), Is Fantastic (33/1), Der Mc (33/1), Tomahawk Kid (50/1), Wakita (100/1), Mardle (100/1)

Verdict

MUSALSAL arrives in top form, displaying a willing attitude for victory number 2 at Gowran 3 weeks ago and a subsequent 5 lb rise ought not to prevent another very bold bid. Blackstone Cliff isn't straightforward but he is dangerous from his basement mark, with Harvey Specter another to consider.
