Betting

Forecast

Monbeg Oscar (6/4), Shalakar (9/2), Hattaab (5/1), Shall We Go Now (5/1), Comrade Conrad (8/1), Skinflint (14/1), Bahama Moon (20/1), Ourville's Million (25/1), Taking A Chance (66/1), Lissycasey (100/1), Gloi (150/1), Eaton Miller (200/1), Buck Bravo (200/1)

Verdict

Comrade Conrad and Shall We Go Now represent leading yards and should pay to follow, particularly when getting better ground to race on. Hattaab caught the eye here last time, but may be of more interest when sent handicapping. Shalakar did well under the circumstances here last time, but MONBEG OSCAR will find this easier than his previous assignments. The expensive purchase failed to get 3m last time, but a previous second to Maria's Benefit looks strong enough in the context of this event.
  1. Monbeg Oscar
  2. Comrade Conrad
  3. Shalakar
