Betting

Forecast

Tartini (7/2), Desert Skyline (4/1), Emenem (9/2), Drochaid (11/2), Hajaj (8/1), Bristol Missile (9/1), Masham Star (10/1), Mister Blue Sky (12/1)

Verdict

DESERT SKYLINE wasn't only narrowly denied in Listed company last time and he's entitled to come on for that effort. Hajaj put his best foot forward last time out and needs to build on that run now while Emenem is another last time out winner who looks capabe of coping with his rise in the weights.
  1. Desert Skyline
  2. Hajaj
  3. Emenem
