Forecasts

Harry's Bar (10/3), The Highway Rat (18/5), Dandalla (11/2), May Sonic (7/1), Stormy Girl (7/1), Lady In France (8/1), Master Matt (8/1), Urban Beat (17/2), Strong Johnson (66/1)

Verdict

LADY IN FRANCE has finished nearer last than first on each of her last three starts, but she would have every chance here if reproducing the form of her close third in the Temple Stakes during the spring. It's worth noting that she was a winner of her sole previous start on the all-weather. Harry's Bar, who got the better of The Highway Rat over C&D last time, and Urban Beat rate the main dangers.

  1. LADY IN FRANCE
  2. HARRY'S BAR
  3. URBAN BEAT (IRE)
