Forecast

Land Of Oz (4/6), Jumping Cats (7/2), Le Torrent (8/1), Petrastar (10/1), Gavlar (16/1), Sunblazer (33/1), Author's Dream (66/1)

Verdict

LAND OF OZ will take some stopping under his penalty if able to transfer his fine winning form from the Polytrack. He should prove too good for older, exposed rivals. If the selection fails to fire then Le Torrent could well be the principal beneficiary as he goes well here and is handicapped to be thereabouts once again. Jumping Cats ran well enough here last autumn and is respected, while Gavlar hinted at a return to form last time and is nicely handicapped on the pick of his old form.
