Forecasts

Timi Roli (5/2), Great Khan (5/2), Thecraicisninety (11/4), Penance (10/1), Riverrainshine (10/1), Muhaafiz (12/1), Darcy Mcgees (20/1), About You (33/1), Oath Breaker (33/1), Benefit Run (50/1), Baby Moon (100/1), Vodka Society (100/1), Dee Jo Val (100/1), Presenting Court (100/1)

Verdict

Around half of this field are very difficult to make a case for, but the half who have a better chance could prove difficult to separate. Among these, preference is for GREAT KHAN, who should enjoy the conditions here today and has shown plenty of improvement, especially on his last start (where he was unlucky to be beaten), with more likely to come. Timi Roli has been beaten at odds-on twice in a row now which has to be a concern, but he clearly has plenty of talent, while Muhaafiz was a decent performer on the Flat who started to show some of that talent over hurdles for the first time on his last start.
  1. Great Khan
  2. Timi Roli
  3. Muhaafiz
