Forecast

Cross My Mind (6/4), Outofthequestion (11/2), Seinesational (5/1), General Ginger (7/1), Acquirer (14/1), Sufi (16/1), Casemates Square (20/1), General Zoff (20/1), Leoro (25/1), Zarrar (25/1), Enchanting Enya (33/1), Ochos Rios (33/1)

Verdict

An open handicap in which the progressive CROSS MY MIND is the selection. The Beckett filly got off the mark at the sixth time of asking when scoring at Windsor in a fashion suggesting this additional distance will prove favourable. She runs off a fair mark of 68 and further progression is expected now she's got her head in front. She is certainly improving with time and experience. Outofthequestion also notched a first success last time and the consistent King four-year-old should be present at the business end off a 3lb higher mark. He battled on we to oblige here last time and rates a reliable type. Casemates Square is on a fair mark too and is likely to make this quite a severe stamina test as he stays much further. He merits respect alongside the hat-trick seeking Seinesational.
