Betting

Forecast

Blue Mist (9/2), Vale Of Kent (5/1), Habub (5/1), Cenotaph (5/1), Admirality (7/1), Beauty Filly (7/1), Keyser Soze (14/1), Cliffs Of Capri (16/1), Firmament (20/1), War Glory (25/1), Documenting (25/1), Intisaab (25/1), Merhoob (25/1), Charles Molson (33/1), Gulliver (33/1), Reputation (50/1)

Verdict

An open renewal as one would expect. A couple of lightly-raced progressive types catch the eye with Habub, who is unbeaten on the AW, and Beauty Filly, who has already made her mark in Listed company. Both are improving but so is this season's Bunbury Cup winner VALE OF KENT who is expected to better his good effort behind Cenotaph in this race last year. Admiralty and Cliffs of Capri are consistent, as is Blue Mist who is suited by large fields and rates a main danger as he should be at peak fitness now.
  1. Vale Of Kent
  2. Blue Mist
  3. Beauty Filly
