Forecasts

Nurse Nightingale (11/4), Moneyoryourlife (4/1), My Brother Mike (9/2), Alternate Route (11/2), Kath's Legacy (8/1), Zambeasy (10/1), Deebaj (16/1), Bamako Du Chatelet (20/1), Heron (20/1), Quebec (25/1), My Lord (50/1)

Verdict

A race that does not look to have much strength-in-depth and the suggestion is BAMAKO DU CHATELET, who represents a stable in decent form, goes well here and is on a very competitive mark. Alternate Route is a probable danger if the blinkers work the oracle over this shorter trip, though he was held by the handicapper from similar marks on his last two starts. Nurse Nightingale would not be an undeserving winner given the near misses that she has recorded, while Kath's Legacy and Deebaj and ones to note in the market for any confidence ahead of this.
  1. Bamako Du Chatelet
  2. Nurse Nightingale
  3. Alternate Route
