Forecast

Quick Recovery (3/1), Prince Rock (9/2), Tarseekh (9/2), Catapult (6/1), Red Snapper (8/1), Le Manege Enchante (10/1), Good Business (12/1), Farol (14/1), Red Skye Delight (14/1), Spenny's Lass (14/1), Wild Flower (14/1), Alaskan Bay (25/1), Simply Sin (25/1), Dandy Lad (50/1)

Verdict

Tarseekh won over 7f here back in February and finished in front of Prince Rock when runner-up over the same distance last time. Le Manege Enchante moves in the opposite direction having gone close over the minimum trip while Red Snapper was placed in a seller at Brighton. Wild Flower has a shout back on the all-weather but FAROL is one of the least exposed having finished a close-up fourth over track and trip on her handicap debut and gets a speculative vote returning from a lay-off.
