Betting

Forecast

Warburton (11/8), Desert Wind (7/4), Suprematism (11/2), Moon of Baroda (8/1), Elysees (20/1), Caspar The Cub (33/1), Mood For Mischief (50/1), Dance Legend (100/1)

Verdict

Desert Wind seeks the hat-trick, but this habitual front runner will very much have the bulls-eye firmly attached to his back, and faces no easy task giving weight to all of his rivals. More than a couple of these horses make appeal on pedigree, but have probably cost their connections more than enough cash at the sales. Suprematism is improving with racing, and he appreciated the extra yardage when placed over C&D last time, but the confident vote goes to the Godolphin owned newcomer WARBURTON. He is a half-brother to the useful winning juvenile Bow and Arrow, and his trainer Charlie Appleby always rates as a man to follow at Dunstall Park, so he's strongly fancied to make a winning debut for the boys in blue.
  1. Warburton
  2. Desert Wind
