Forecasts

Treaty Of Vienna (10/3), Alphabet (4/1), Art Nouvelle (8/1), Callender (9/1), Delegating (10/1), Little Clarinet (12/1), Swish (12/1), Red Sabor (12/1), Solar Halo (14/1), Alfredo Arcano (16/1), Mirdif (20/1), Ambiguity (20/1), Miss Cogent (25/1), Comhghairdeas (25/1)

Verdict

A challenging puzzle to solve, with plenty holding claims, but there was a lot to like in the way TREATY OF VIENNA won a Cork maiden last week, quickly moving clear in the style of an improving young horse. He hasn't been dealt out of this by the handicapper and with more improvement very probable on just his fourth start he has a good chance to score again. Top-weight Callender is respected though there would be easier scenarios for his opening race of the year while Alphabet is a very lively threat for the in-form Ballydoyle team. Alfredo Arcano should find this trip more to his liking on second turf start while money for Solar Halo would be noted given his trainer's recent run. Swish and Red Sabor are others that are capable of having a say.
  1. Treaty Of Vienna
  2. Alphabet
