Forecasts

Bahama Moon (7/2), Throckley (9/2), Marsh Pride (6/1), Gabrial's Kaka (13/2), Thistimenextyear (7/1), Outback Blue (8/1), Celestation (8/1), Staff College (11/1), Jabbaar (14/1), Vettori Rules (16/1), Energia Fox (20/1), Dutch Artist (25/1)

Verdict

An open-looking contest with various question marks surrounding most of these but the mud-loving BAHAMA MOON has been cut plenty of slack by the handicapper and could prove the answer on ground which will be to his liking. Much the same could be said about Throckley, whilst potential improver Staff College has to be of some interest on his handicap debut along with Celestation.
  1. Bahama Moon
  2. Staff College
  3. Throckley
