Forecasts

Enthaar (9/2), Smokey Lane (5/1), Big Lachie (6/1), Last Page (7/1), Zeyzoun (7/1), Bungee Jump (17/2), Handytalk (10/1), Firmdecisions (12/1), A Sure Welcome (12/1), Madrinho (12/1), Kraka (12/1), Boy In The Bar (20/1), Top Boy (25/1), The Gates Of Dawn (33/1), Gold Hunter (40/1), Englishman (50/1)

Verdict

A wide open heat where the suggestion is ENTHAAR, who is on a very competitive mark and back over a more suitable trip. Boy In The Bar could go well in this grade under topweight, while Firmdecisions looks a contender again, as does Zeyzoun. Gold Hunter would be particularly interesting if market vibes are positive, while Smokey Lane, Big Lachie, Last Page and Handytalk are among others you can't rule out.
  1. Enthaar
  2. Boy In The Bar
  3. Firmdecisions
