Mister Coffey (6/4), Benson (9/2), Solo (15/2), Jolly's Cracked It (9/1), Galice Macalo (10/1), Rosie And Millie (12/1), Eglantine Du Seuil (12/1), Totterdown (16/1), Nickolson (18/1), Let The Heirs Walk (80/1)

Verdict

The ease in which MISTER COFFEY came through from the back to score impressively over C&D last time sticks in the mind and, with more to come, he's well fancied to defy a rise despite this tougher assignment. Galice Macalo is a clear danger unless she gets in a speed duel, while it's too soon to write Solo off as he tries a handicap for the first time.

  1. MISTER COFFEY (FR)
  2. GALICE MACALO (FR)
  3. SOLO (FR)
