Forecast

Inclyne (11/4), Fantasy Believer (9/2), Maori Knight (5/1), Pledge Of Honour (13/2), Bucephalus (8/1), Kattani (17/2), Always Fearless (10/1), Mayfair Pompette (10/1), Maurimo (11/1), Carp Kid (18/1), Retrospect (18/1), Gallaside (33/1), Don't Jump George (33/1), Idilico (50/1), Dynali (66/1)

Verdict

Marginal preference is for INCLYNE who hasn't been seen out since scoring in taking style at Newmarket in June but goes well fresh and still has potential for further progress. Pledge of Honour was in front when unseating his rider at Windsor last time so is given another chance, while Fantasy Believer and Maurimo are two others sure to make their presence felt now they step up in trip.

  1. INCLYNE
  2. PLEDGE OF HONOUR
  3. FANTASY BELIEVER (IRE)
