Forecast

Theatrebar (11/10), Apterix (11/4), Vancouver (13/2), Tomkevi (9/1), Ink Master (9/1), Forty Crown (28/1)

Verdict
Not an easy race to call with holes to be picked in the chances of all six of them and perhaps TOMKEVI could be the one. We know that he acts around this unique track and also that he can win on a sound surface, while he remains weighted to be very competitive. Apterix could have a squeak if able to put his best hoof forward, while course winner Theatrebar has to be respected, though he is likely to need to cut out the jumping errors if he is to succeed from this mark. Vancouver and Forty Crown give the impression that they are held by the handicapper for the moment.
  1. Tomkevi
  2. Theatrebar
  3. Apterix
