Forecasts

Annual Invictus (4/7), Dorking Lad (9/4), Itsnotwhatyouthink (10/1), Promising Milan (10/1), Norley (22/1), Albert Hucklebuck (28/1), Bunny Boru (50/1), Henschke (150/1)

Verdict

Plenty of improvers here, not least ANNUAL INVICTUS, who has progressed well in recent months and can complete the hat-trick under a double penalty with the promise of even better to come up in trip. Dorking Lad looks the chief threat on paper provided this doesn't come too soon just 4 days on from his Market Rasen second, ahead of Itsnotwhatyouthink.
