Betting

Forecast

Topmeup (11/8), Seaforth (7/2), Time Medicean (9/2), Born To Boogie (9/1), Kylie Style (12/1), Swift Fox (12/1), Malaysian Boleh (14/1), Suni Dancer (20/1), Lutine Charlie (20/1)

Verdict

Running in this grade for the first time, TOPMEUP is the choice with the excellent Adam Kirby booked. Malaysian Boleh has been a fine servant and goes well here so should be right on the premsies, while another veteran Time Medicean can't be ruled out of the equation despite the steadier of top weight. Last year's winner Lutine Charlie is out of form and seems likely to struggle to follow up, but Born To Boogie and Kylie Style aren't out of it on the pick of their recent efforts.
  1. Topmeup
  2. Malaysian Boleh
  3. Born To Boogie
