Betting

Forecast

Abyssinian (4/5), World War (2/1), Chess Grand Master (7/1), Capital Fund (9/1), Noble Jones (10/1), Don Pedro (12/1), Yug (16/1), Grand Armada (16/1), Buckeye (25/1), River Run (33/1)

Verdict

ABYSSINIAN was only narrowly beaten last time and looks the one to beat in first time blinkers. World War may do better now gelded while Grand Chess Master has run well in a pair of bumpers on two career outings so far.
  1. Abyssinian
  2. World War
  3. Chess Grand Master
