Forecasts

Thomas Patrick (7/2), Shotgun Paddy (11/2), Gingili (11/2), Yanmare (7/1), Jepeck (15/2), Dawson City (8/1), Knockanrawley (17/2), Cresswell Breeze (17/2), Spookydooky (9/1), Act Now (12/1), Emperor's Choice (14/1), All Kings (25/1)

Verdict

A relatively open contest where cases can be made for several runners, but KNOCKANRAWLEY is the one who finds favour. You can usually set your clock by the performances of Kim Bailey's charge, so his latest run was a bit of a disappointment. However, back over an extreme trip and on this ground, we could see a revival in fortunes from what is a good mark. Cresswell Breeze is entitled to healthy respect, while Spookydooky and the unexposed runners Gingili, Thomas Patrick and Act Now are of interest. Lower down the weights Jepeck is not ruled out.
  1. Knockanrawley
  2. Spookydooky
  3. Gingili
