Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

It's probably best to forgive YAFTA's latest run at Newmarket as he's a big player on his best form and showed he's effective under these conditions when second in the Chipchase here as a 3-y-o. Simon & Ed Crisford run the very interesting Jash, who's not been seen since disappointing in last year's Commonwealth Cup.

Betting Forecast

3/1 Jash (Ire), 22/1 Volatile Analyst (Usa), 14/1 Harry's Bar, 7/2 Yafta, 5/1 Glen Shiel, 9/2 Danzeno
