Forecast

Solomon Grey (15/8), Buster Thomas (10/3), Mercian Prince (5/1), Western Miller (6/1), Drumcliff (11/1), Monbeg Legend (11/1), Mcgroarty (12/1), Stynes (20/1), Double W's (40/1)

Verdict

A good-quality handicap, with the vote going to WESTERN MILLER who has transformed himself into a very likeable front-running chaser in the last year or so. Solomon Grey finished third in the Summer Plate from this mark last month so has to be feared, with Mercian Prince, behind the selection over C&D last time, completing the shortlist.

  1. WESTERN MILLER (IRE)
  2. SOLOMON GREY (FR)
  3. MERCIAN PRINCE (IRE)
