Betting

Forecast

Mcgarry (10/3), Garde Forestier (7/2), Sincerely Resdev (13/2), Aronius (7/1), Ex S'elance (15/2), Burrows Diamond (8/1), The Herds Garden (11/1), Snowed In (14/1), Conundrum (14/1), Oakmont (16/1), Thinque Tank (18/1), Comber Mill (18/1), Ivors Involvement (18/1), Little Orange (20/1), Top Beak (25/1), Summer Lightening (33/1), Friary Gold (150/1)

Verdict

A case can be made for a few but at the likely odds it could be worth siding with SUMMER LIGHTENING to bounce back to form and repeat last year's success now she's slipped in the weights and returns to her optimum trip. Top-weight Oakmont is sure to make his presence felt again, while Garde Forestier is another in-form rival who needs considering.
