Betting

Forecast

National Guard (5/1), Sky Seven (5/1), Aussie Valentine (5/1), Ideal Pal (11/2), Equitant (7/1), Tony The Gent (7/1), Zander (8/1), Come September (10/1), Gospel (25/1), Aurora Moon (25/1)

Verdict

Hard pressed to rule many of these out with certainty and so the reliable AUSSIE VALENTINE gets the nod. He's been operating in some hot handicaps of late and could prove a tough nut to crack if getting the lead here. Once-raced winner Come September should have more to come while Tony The Gent boasts recent C&D form and joins National Guard on the shortlist, with the latter sure to be better suited back up in trip.
  1. Aussie Valentine
