Betting

Forecast

Global Warning (5/4), Fearless Warrior (9/4), Kuwait Currency (5/1), Wiretap (5/1), Goodwood Sonnet (8/1), Thorn (12/1), Power Of Life (12/1), Merlin's Magic (20/1), Such Promise (33/1)

Verdict

There are a number of horses here with good pedigrees who have yet to really put it together on the racecourse from limited opportunities. WIRETAP gets the nod having attracted money on debut, but a slow start cooked his goose. Now gelded, he should be able to focus his mind on the task in hand. Both Fearless Warrior and Global Warning look the part on paper. They showed promsie on their respective debuts and should play a biger role this time. Power Of Life and Such Promise are also open to improvement, while the beautifully bred Thorn is surely capable of much better than he showed on an underwhelming debut.
  1. Wiretap
  2. Fearless Warrior
  3. Global Warning
