Betting

Forecast

Atty Persse (6/4), Medahim (13/2), First Up (10/1), The Grape Escape (11/1), Mucho Applause (12/1), Jupiter Light (12/1), Colibri (14/1), Dr Julius No (16/1), Cullingworth (16/1), Contrast (20/1), Rebel De Lope (22/1), Mister Blue Sky (25/1), Trading Punches (33/1), Juanito Chico (50/1)

Verdict

One of if not the best three-year-old handicaps of the season so far and made all the more difficult as a betting contest by the fact that eight of the field are making their handicap debuts. Several of these probably have loftier ambitions looking at their entries with ATTY PERSSE very much falling into that category after his impressive C&D win last year. Dangers abound though with The Grape Escape and Medahim two others with very good claims here although the latter does have a difficult draw to overcome. Most of those to have already run in handicaps look to have a tough task here and other handicap debutantes such as Jupiter Light and First Up look to have much better chances off their current marks.
  1. Atty Persse
  2. The Grape Escape
  3. Jupiter Light
