Forecasts

Verdict

It's worth rolling the dice with FIT FOR FUNCTION, who hasn't been at his best of late but is now 2 lb lower than when scoring over C&D in March. Maggie Thunder did the job well over 5f here recently (Keepthebestsideout and Seanjohnsilver back in fourth and seventh respectively) and is feared despite a big hike in the weights. Sestriere and likely improver Hodd's Girl are others to consider.

  1. FIT FOR FUNCTION
  2. MAGGIE THUNDER (IRE)
  3. SESTRIERE (IRE)
