Forecast

Future Investment (4/1), Rhythmic Intent (11/2), Rajinsky (6/1), Cape Coast (17/2), Brandon Castle (12/1), Euchen Glen (14/1), Australis (14/1), Just In Time (14/1), Calling The Wind (16/1), Glencadam Glory (16/1), Diocletian (18/1), Indianapolis (18/1), Reshoun (20/1), Dark Jedi (22/1), Saglawy (33/1), Finniston Farm (66/1), Stargazer (150/1)

Verdict

A superb renewal of the Old Borough Cup but ready preference is for RHYTHMIC INTENT who relished the step up in trip when a most taking winner at Newbury (13f) last time and has plenty more to offer here given his liking to soft ground. Tim Easterby's Ebor second Glencadam Glory and thriving Dark Jedi are both well worth considering, while Australis can have a say too if handling the soft surface.

  1. RHYTHMIC INTENT (IRE)
  2. GLENCADAM GLORY
  3. DARK JEDI (IRE)
