Forecast

Sojourn (11/4), Hill Sixteen (11/4), Enqarde (7/1), Highest Sun (15/2), Lord Napier (9/1), Sam's Adventure (14/1), Salty Boy (14/1), Roll Again (16/1), Crixus's Escape (16/1), Pop Rockstar (40/1)

Verdict

SOJOURN looks the most progressive and is fancied to add to his convincing reappearance win at Carlisle. Hill Sixteen is unbeaten since joining Nigel Twiston-Davies and looks the main threat despite a hefty rise, while Highest Sun can't be ruled out following a more positive display when fourth at Newbury.

  1. SOJOURN (IRE)
  2. HILL SIXTEEN
  3. HIGHEST SUN (FR)
