Betting

Forecast

Old Persian (1/2), Department Of War (3/1), Court House (6/1)

Verdict

A disappointing turn-out numerically, but an intriguing contest nevertheless. Court House was unlucky last time and seems to be progressive, but he has to prove himself on turf and over this longer trip, while Department Of War steps up markedly in class and is posed a stiff challenge. He could be up to the task, but OLD PERSIAN has form at this level and is clearly the one to beat, albeit with his stable not quite in the fantastic form of a month ago.
  1. Old Persian
  2. Court House
  3. Department Of War
