Forecasts

Rectory Road (4/1), Far From A Ruby (9/2), Kenstone (9/2), Never Said Nothing (8/1), Globe Theatre (17/2), Aweemaweh (17/2), Zest Of Zambia (9/1), Bronze River (12/1), Pope Gregory (14/1), Kodiellen (20/1), Chifa (28/1), Bright View (33/1), Disey's Edge (33/1), Outer Space (80/1)

Verdict

FAR FROM A RUBY confirmed the improvement shown at Kempton when runner-up at Nottingham 15 days ago. That form looks solid for the grade so another big effort looks on the cards. Kenstone and Rectory Road head the opposition, in that order.

  1. FAR FROM A RUBY
  2. KENSTONE (FR)
  3. RECTORY ROAD
