Forecast

Humanitarian (7/2), Dash Of Spice (7/2), Dubai Future (9/2), Scarlet Dragon (9/2), Mankayan (5/1), Fox Vardy (7/1), Dreamweaver (10/1), Calling The Wind (10/1), Stylehunter (11/1), King's Caper (12/1)

Verdict

FOX VARDY has shown he's up to defying this mark when placed in good quality handicaps at York and Ascot, so he has to be worth another chance with his latest effort at Newmarket very excusable. Mankayan's consistency is hard to knock, while Humanitarian and Scarlet Dragon are others to consider in an interesting handicap.

  1. FOX VARDY (USA)
  2. MANKAYAN (IRE)
  3. HUMANITARIAN (USA)
