Forecast

Present Chief (7/2), Starsky (7/2), Josie Abbing (7/2), Imperial Acolyte (6/1), Corri Lindo (8/1), Captain Speaking (8/1), Nothing Man (16/1), Easter Eric (16/1), Arcadian Sea (25/1), Broom Tip (80/1)

Verdict
STARSKY had been running some fair races in defeat and has been quietly improving in all his last three starts. If making similar progress then he could prove too strong for his rivals in a race that may not take too much winning with question marks about plenty of his rivals. Captain Speaking is a fairly consistent sort and may give the selection most to do if running his usual reliable race. Corri Lindo is another who has a fair level of consistency, suggesting place backers may want to get involved.
