Forecast

Hawk's Well (16/5), Merry Milan (4/1), Demon Fou (9/2), Meyer Lansky (6/1), Cubao (15/2), Ambion Hill (9/1), Kilbrew Boy (10/1), Emphatic Qualm (12/1), Nelson's Touch (14/1), Paricolor (20/1), Leading Knight (25/1), Bonanza Sam (28/1), Big Tree (28/1), Falberto (28/1), Sastruga (40/1), Roseriver Has (80/1)

Verdict

DEMON FOU is handily weighted and will have come on for his Uttoxeter return, so is sure to make his presence felt in an open race. Hawk's Well is another well worth a second look, as is Merry Milan.

  1. DEMON FOU (FR)
  2. HAWK'S WELL (IRE)
  3. MERRY MILAN (IRE)
