Forecasts

Verdict

A competitive heat which can go to MIDNIGHT COWBOYfor the in-form Alan King yard, as the race he won last time has worked out well so far and there should be more to come from him. Wake Your Dreams, Bendomingo and Ghost River should all be involved at the business end, while the handicapper has relented with Bodega, who might go well at a price. 1. Midnight Cowboy 2. Bodega 3. Bendomingo
