Forecast

Corazon Espinado (3/1), Dourado (10/3), Lady In Question (4/1), Pastoral Player (9/2), Hula Girl (5/1), Hedging (7/1), Suzi's Connoisseur (7/1), Red Tycoon (18/1)

Verdict
It could pay to chance DOURADO who was well fancied here latest as a dual 2017 C&D winner seemingly in good form before ultimately disappointing and surely not running his race. He's had a break since so perhaps something came to light and he could now be ready to make up for that latest disappointment. Lady In Question is most feared as a filly seemingly getting close to a good mark and she's by and large been consistent this term. Suzi's Connoisseur appreciates a bit of juice in the ground so should go well unless conditions dry up too much.
  1. Dourado
  2. Lady In Question
  3. Suzi's Connoisseur
