Betting

Forecast

Kasbaan (11/4), Motawaj (4/1), Kuwait Currency (5/1), Gossiping (13/2), Freerolling (9/1), King's Slipper (9/1), Mayfair Spirit (16/1), Felix The Poet (16/1), Family Fortunes (22/1), Arigato (25/1), Directory (33/1)

Verdict

This will be run at a good pace, with Arigato, Felix The Poet and Directory all wanting to get on with it early, and it could be set up for a finisher. KASBAAN was happy to sit behind the leaders when successful here earlier in the week and connections may well try similar tactics today. It'll be a surprise if we've seen the best of him and Mick Appleby is excellent at getting the best out of these cast-offs from other yards. Motawaj has the weight to carry but knows how to win and will also get this run to suit. Watch for Freerolling coming with a late effort as well.
  1. Kasbaan
  2. Freerolling
  3. Motawaj
