Forecast

Royal Diplomat (6/4), Moonlight Bay (4/1), Verbitude (4/1), My Silver Nails (5/1), Way Back Home (12/1), Verhoyen (16/1), Footstepsintime (16/1), Pak Army (25/1), Spirit Of Dreams (25/1), Silvana Maria (33/1), Legatum (33/1)

Verdict

The filly MOONLIGHT BAY is taken to claim this opening two-year-old contest of the season. The selection hails from a yard who do well with their juveniles and is a full-sister to a two-year-old winner of a couple of years ago. Verbitude is another likely to be involved in the finish here coming from a stable who have introduced some classy juvenile's early in the season and his trainers horses are running well at present while the expensively purchased Royal Diplomat is also worth noting here.
  1. Moonlight Bay
  2. Verbitude
  3. Royal Diplomat
