FORESTSIDE came right back to his best over track and trip three weeks ago under AP McCoy. He's only been raised a couple of pounds for that narrow success and, still well treated on his old form, there seems no reason to desert him now. Hurraboru may be the danger as he was just touched off by Micro Mission at Wetherby last month and is only a pound higher, though Stormion is a C&D winner and won a small race at Newcastle last time. Merrydown and Harry The Lemmon could figure but this looks a bit competitive for Ockey De Neulliac nowadays and Seven Is Lucky also looks to be feeling his age. Solis has been placed in his last three starts but looks held by the selection on a line through Talkin Sence.
