Forecast

Eminence (2/1), Forest View (9/2), Moktamel (11/2), Dalileo (8/1), Lyrical Attraction (8/1), Moonmeister (12/1), Persian Lion (16/1), Tony The Gent (16/1), Park Row (16/1), Politicise (16/1), Building Bridges (16/1), Convara (20/1), Spruce Meadows (25/1), Le Vagabond (33/1), Timemakesitfine (40/1)

Verdict
MOONMEISTER still looks on a reasonable mark after is currently running full of confidence after struggling earlier in the year. Add those facts to his ability to act at this track and the eight-year-old has an excellent chance of recording his sixth course victory. Eminence may appreciate this step back in trip but it remains to be seen if he is racing off a fair handicap mark at present; nonetheless, he is likely to be popular in the betting ring. Dalileo is a very consistent sort and it would be no surprise to see him turn his preference for an AW surface to another victory while Timemakesitfine is an outsider who may run well.
