Verdict

The 3 last-time-out scorers look the ones to focus on here, with preference for Laura Young's AUENWIRBEL, who made light of a 13-month absence to score readily over C&D 9 days. He should come on from that and seemingly holds leading claims of following up. Aronius and Russian Service rate as the obvious dangers, with 3-time C&D winner Tactical Manoeuvre another to consider.

  1. AUENWIRBEL (GER)
  2. ARONIUS (GER)
  3. RUSSIAN SERVICE
