Forecasts

Flash The Steel (3/1), Flashing Glance (9/2), Maquisard (7/1), Benny's Bridge (8/1), Equus Amadeus (8/1), Nelson's Touch (9/1), Our Merlin (9/1), Champagne City (10/1), Storm Home (25/1), Chti Balko (25/1), Demopolis (33/1), John Constable (50/1)

Verdict

CHAMPAGNE CITY is expected to come on for a solid come back effort last time and he will be better suited to the likely decent ground than several of these. Maquisard would appear to still be on a workable handicap mark while Nelson's Touch has been running well in defeat of late.
  1. Champagne City
  2. Maquisard
  3. Nelson's Touch
