Betting

Forecast

Wissahickon (1/3), Matterhorn (9/2), Court House (7/1), Master The World (10/1), Victory Bond (16/1), Roc Angel (25/1), Executive Force (25/1), Pactolus (40/1)

Verdict

There seems little point in opposing WISSAHICKON in his bid to make it four course and distance wins on the spin and he could hardly have won the Winter Derby with much more authority last time out. The main danger is probably Matterhorn who brings in a different form line and it's likely he will try and get the likely favourite beat by setting a good tempo from the front. Master The World and Court House can do battle for minor honours with the former preferred when taking into account he should get a strong gallop to aim at.
  1. Wissahickon
  2. Matterhorn
  3. Master The World
