Sky Pirate (11/2), Almazhar Garde (6/1), Storm Control (15/2), Shannon Bridge (8/1), Cool Mix (17/2), Ecu De La Noverie (17/2), Tintern Theatre (17/2), Schiehallion Munro (10/1), Demi Sang (12/1), Awake At Midnight (16/1), Wishfull Dreaming (18/1), Pougne Bobbi (20/1), The Dubai Way (25/1), Cracking Find (33/1), Dimple (80/1)
ALMAZHAR GARDE and Schiehallion Munro both remain open to improvement and are expected to come to the fore in this competitive handicap. The latter is 3-4 over fences and is seriously considered but Almazhar Garde, who performed with credit in a strong race at Kempton in March, may have more in hand off his current mark than that rival. Ecu De La Noverie and Sky Pirate are others to consider.
