Forecasts

Royal Blend (1/1), Arctician (2/1), Palifico (13/2), Zerinda (15/2), Inveterate (12/1), Let's Believe (14/1), Due North (16/1), Blueberry Tree (20/1), Just Let Go (25/1), Ambitious (25/1), The Pocket Flyer (33/1), Rufus Saxton (33/1), Gerard C (40/1), Erikson (125/1), Rural Capital (150/1), Lady Sands (150/1), Maymoon (200/1)

Verdict

ARCTICIAN failed to meet expectations on his reappearance at Tipperary in August, but can take this if returning to the pick of his form in a first-time visor. Royal Blend is clear next best, ahead of Palifico, in a maiden lacking depth.

  1. ARCTICIAN (IRE)
  2. ROYAL BLEND
