Betting

Forecast

Epatante (3/1), Elusive Belle (11/2), Crooks Peak (6/1), Elvis Mail (6/1), French Crusader (8/1), Scarlet Dragon (9/1), Christopher Wood (10/1), Antunes (10/1), Fanfan Du Seuil (12/1), Storm Goddess (14/1), Torcello (25/1), Beat The Judge (33/1)

Verdict

Scarlet Dragon can't be ruled out on form, but conditions for him have to be a concern, while Christopher Wood may be capable of better than on his return to action from wind surgery and is considered. Antunes, Epatante and Elvis Mail are others with claims, but preference is for ELUSIVE BELLE, whose form with Reserve Tank reads well, and who's introduction to handicapping could bear further fruit.
  1. Elusive Belle
  2. Elvis Mail
  3. Epatante
