Forecast

Wind In My Sails (5/2), Desert Dream (9/2), Fleeting Freedom (6/1), Golden Guest (9/1), Glendun (9/1), Glorious Player (11/1), Whitkirk (12/1), Glacier Fox (14/1), Global Pass (20/1), Off Art (25/1), Woody Bay (33/1), Rock Warbler (66/1)

Verdict
WIND IN MY SAILS ran well to finish third last time and he can record his first victory of the season in this opening contest. Trainer Ed De Giles can boast an 18% strike-rate (3/17) in recent times and his charge can get the better of Desert Dream who ran well on his debut for this yard at the start of the month. Glendun should appreciate the return to this distance and he can claim third on his first start of the season.
  1. Wind In My Sails
  2. Desert Dream
  3. Glendun
