Forecast

Blue Mist (3/1), Via Serendipity (7/2), Society Lion (6/1), Willie John (7/1), Raising Sand (12/1), Documenting (14/1), Tomfre (14/1), Wise Counsel (18/1), Accidental Agent (18/1), Almufti (20/1), Queen's Sargent (20/1), Arbalet (25/1), Revich (25/1), Ejtilaab (33/1), Oh This Is Us (33/1), Fox Champion (50/1), Dirty Rascal (80/1)

Verdict

WILLIE JOHN was one of the last off the bridle when fourth in the Golden Mile at Glorious Goodwood and the return to this trip (winner of sole previous 7f start as a 2-y-o) could be just what he needs. Blue Mist deservedly bagged a big C&D handicap in July and should give another good account, but the same owner's Society Lion is feared most.

  1. WILLIE JOHN
  2. SOCIETY LION
  3. BLUE MIST
