Forecasts

Verdict

TIME STANDS STILL has been threatening to get a breakthrough on the AW recently and is on a feasible mark now switching to this surface in a heat where there are not outstanding candidates. Bay Of Skaill should also have claims, if the trip isn't on the sharp side while the likes of Focus Of Attention and Pillar can also have a case made, though the latter was poor last time out.
  1. Time Stands Still
  2. Bay Of Skaill
  3. Focus Of Attention
