Forecast

No Trouble (9/4), Sharjah (3/1), Caronda (8/1), Magic Sea (8/1), Cliara (10/1), Trump Card (10/1), Drummer (12/1), Griffyndor (14/1), Tio Esteban (16/1), Lady Of Luxury (16/1), Early Strike (20/1), Del Campo (20/1), Ally Cay (25/1), Cape Agulhas (25/1), Duke Of Waspington (25/1), Natch (33/1), Wave Walker (50/1)

Verdict
The Andrew Slattery-trained SHARJAH can land the opener from the front. The 10-year-old is a three-time winner over C&D has not been beaten far in a couple of starts in the last month and can get first run on the field at they turn for home at the expense of No Trouble who will have to negotiate through the field from stall 16. The Tim Doyle-trained Caronda and the returning Early Strike can compete for the remaining place while Ally Cay can go well at a price.
  1. Sharjah
  2. No Trouble
  3. Early Strike
