Forecasts

One True King (3/1), The Bees Knees (3/1), Takeit Easy (7/1), Art Approval (15/2), Panic Attack (8/1), Princess T (12/1), Chasamax (14/1), Hazzaar (16/1), Percy's Word (20/1), Leroy Leroy (22/1), Lively Citizen (33/1), Hydroplane (40/1), Motashakel (40/1), Seaborn (40/1), Calvinist (66/1), Guildhall (125/1), Motdepas (200/1)

Lots with chances but Fergal O'Brien took this 12 months ago and has another very strong contender in THE BEES KNEES who made a mockery of his opening handicap mark when a 15-length scorer at Musselburgh last week and gets in under a 7 lb penalty here. One True King is another with better days ahead of him so rates the chief threat, while both Takeit Easy and Seaborn are worth considering too.

  1. THE BEES KNEES (IRE)
  2. ONE TRUE KING (IRE)
  3. TAKEIT EASY
