Forecast

Mcfabulous (10/11), Summerville Boy (6/1), Younevercall (13/2), On The Blind Side (11/1), Indefatigable (11/1), Thomas Darby (12/1), Call Me Lord (12/1)

Verdict

A cracking renewal of the Relkeel in which the upwardly-mobile MCFABULOUS is strongly fancied to resume winning ways now he drops back in trip having not quite got home over 3m when a strong-travelling third to Thyme Hill at Newbury. The likeable Younvercall arrives in great order so shouldn't be underestimated though with On The Blind Side and last year's winner Summerville Boy also considered.

  1. MCFABULOUS (IRE)
  2. YOUNEVERCALL (IRE)
  3. ON THE BLIND SIDE (IRE)
