Band of Outlaws (2/1), G Force (4/1), Comhghairdeas (4/1), Golden Spell (4/1), Patuano (11/2), Amanaat (25/1)

Verdict

A compact field of just six runners, yet still not the easiest handicap to solve. G Force is the ageing former class act, but the pair to concentrate upon are possibly Golden Spell and BAND OF OUTLAWS. The selection is most probably high enough in the weights, but he did end the season as a progressive 7f specialist. Whilst this 6f trip is on the sharp side, testing conditions at a track he handles very well are helpful and that's the reason he just holds sway over the Johnny Murtagh trained filly.
