Betting

Forecast

Ayutthaya (11/8), Book of Dreams (6/1), Indomeneo (6/1), Fake News (6/1), Breaking Records (11/1), Miss Bar Beach (12/1), Shuhood (14/1), Ventura Knight (20/1), Chingachgook (25/1), Chookie Dunedin (25/1), Joe's Spirit (25/1), Hard Graft (25/1)

Verdict

Breaking Records is going the right way and could get involved here, though pedigree suggests that ground on the slow side of good is a concern. Indomeneo, on the other hand, won't mind any more rain and if ready to do himself justice he could go close if overcoming a wide draw. Book Of Dreams and Fake News are others with claims, though preference is for AYUTTHAYA, who looks potentially well handicapped on his debut in this sphere and won't mind the ease in the ground.
  1. Ayutthaya
  2. Indomeneo
  3. Book of Dreams
