Farrants Way (3/1), Exploiteur (16/5), Ask Dillon (4/1), Storm Arising (6/1), Illegal Model (9/1), Clyne (12/1), Flashjack (22/1), Nordano (33/1), Perfect Man (40/1), Oscar Asche (40/1), Sykes (50/1), Boyhood (80/1)

Verdict

FARRANTS WAY had Storm Arising ahead of him in second when third at Sandown last month but it was a very encouraging return to action from Venetia Williams' lightly-raced 7-y-o and he's taken to build on that and turn the tables on his old rival. Illegal Model is another who ran well in that same Sandown contest and also makes the shortlist along with progressive C&D winner Exploiteur.

  2. STORM ARISING (IRE)
  3. EXPLOITEUR (FR)
