Forecasts

Prosecution (9/4), Lady Nathaniel (7/2), Bay Of Skaill (4/1), Rippling Waters (5/1), Kendwar (6/1), Sketching (14/1), Time Stands Still (14/1), Approbare (33/1), Kissmass (66/1)

Verdict

The Melbourne 10 have sent a strong raiding party over from England, and their Rippling Waters would have a fair chance of breaking her duck given her handicap mark of 73 (if adapting to this surface), whilst both Lady Nathaniel and the frustrating Prosecution also have reasonable chances. However, despite having a fraction to find at the weights, a chance is taken on the Joseph Murphy trained BAY OF SKAILL. She's inconsistent overall, but the pick of her efforts (most notably at The Curragh in July) mark her out as a player at potentially more rewarding odds. Furthermore, it's worth noting that she's a half-sister to a 7f-1m Fibresand winner.
  1. Bay Of Skaill
  2. Lady Nathaniel
  3. Rippling Waters
