Forecast

Gumball (3/1), Young Merlin (5/1), Calculation (6/1), Seinesational (8/1), Platitude (8/1), Kaloor (8/1), Vibrance (10/1), Fire Jet (18/1), Mukha Magic (20/1), Yellow Tiger (20/1), Soghan (25/1), Jersey Wonder (33/1)

Verdict

A tricky finale. CALCULATION made an underwhelming return at Newmarket in June but he'd taken off when stepped up to 1m6f last year, so is worth another chance to pick up the progressive thread back at this trip. Yellow Tiger remains unexpsoed as a stayer, while Fire Jet is another who could go well with her reappearance behind her.
