Betting

Forecast

Fixed Rate (5/2), One For Billy (10/3), Bonnet's Vino (4/1), Danceintothelight (4/1), Mamoo (10/1), Knight's Parade (12/1), Occasionally Yours (25/1)

Verdict
This is likely to be run at good clip but it will take a good effort to peg back DANCEINTOTHELIGHT if he continues to flourish. The gelding went close at Kelso last time out and has solid claims from the same mark against this similar level of competition. One For Billy also like to make the running and can ensure the selction doesn't have it all his own way, while Knight's Parade is on a handy mark and could very feasibly pick up the pieces if the front-runners happen to burn themselves out.
  1. Danceintothelight
  2. One For Billy
  3. Knight's Parade
