Forecast

Enliven (11/8), Hanno (5/2), Nathr (3/1), Pashan Garh (7/1), Only For You (33/1)

Verdict

After 26 starts without a victory, it's difficult to make a case for Pashan Garh despite the small field. Only For You is also worth opposing following a lengthy absence and you could also argue that Hanno is starting to look exposed having come up short when a hot favourite in his last three starts. After a fair debut behind Evita Peron at Newbury, ENLIVEN (NAP) only found Zain Empire a head too good in a Carlisle maiden. The winner has since run well in a handicap at Sandown and Andrew Balding's filly can go one better here ahead of Salisbury fourth Nathr.
