Forecasts

Happy Escape (11/4), Dangerous Ends (9/2), Kingston Kurrajong (6/1), Phosphorescence (7/1), Stormingin (10/1), Bluff Crag (10/1), Arsenio Lupin (12/1), Chetan (12/1), Lava Light (12/1), Freddy With A Y (20/1), Peace Officer (20/1)

Verdict

HAPPY ESCAPE looks the most likely winner having excelled since joining Neil Mulholland. She appeared to have plenty in hand when scoring here last time and can defy her ratings hike to go in again. This will certainly be tougher, with Dangerous Ends and Bluff Crag having C&D form to their name while Kingston Kurrajong is interesting returned from a break on what could be favourable terms. Adam Kirby is an intriguing booking on board AW debutante Stormingin, who has seemingly been handed a chance by the assessor here.
