Forecast

Breath Caught (3/1), Morlock (6/1), Maksab (7/1), Wilson (17/2), Neeraan (10/1), Echo Cove (12/1), George (12/1), Mandalayan (12/1), Plunger (12/1), Intense Pleasure (20/1), Bertog (20/1), Christopher Wood (22/1), Agar's Plough (22/1), Launceston Place (22/1), Shuhood (33/1), Island Sound (40/1)

Verdict

BREATH CAUGHT was a winner last time out and the form of that race has been franked by the second, third and sixth since. He may not only be well-handicapped, but there's a good chance he will improve and he'll be hard to beat if he does. Intense Pleasure is another well-handicapped sort who could improve on handicap debut. Bertog brings course form to the table after a good third here last year and that form shouldn't be underestimated.
  1. Breath Caught
  2. Intense Pleasure
  3. Bertog
