Forecast

Gaelforce West (5/2), Desert Highway (11/4), Castel Gandolfo (4/1), Movie King (13/2), Loved Out (9/1), Collaborating (12/1), Man River (16/1)

Verdict
This race looks thin on the ground in terms of strength in depth, and with not much to go on ready preference is for CASTEL GANDOLFO. This Dark Angel colt cost a fair amount as a yearling, and connections look to have found him an ideal opening. He is likely to be given most to do by Desert Highway who looks the pick of the rest on paper being a half-brother to Irish Leger winner Royal Diamond. Both Gaelforce West and Movie King are also worth mentioning. The former represents a yard who have returned to action in good form, while the latter has an interesting pedigree but has been gelded ahead of making his debut.
  1. Castel Gandolfo
  2. Desert Highway
  3. Gaelforce West
