Betting

Forecast

Desert Icon (11/8), Elwazir (11/4), Wait Forever (9/2), Dal Horrisgle (9/2), Kuwait Currency (20/1)

Verdict

Question marks remain over one or two of these and it’s the solid effort of DESERT ICON last time that looks to be the performance to concentrate on here. Left poorly-placed in that similar contest 21 days ago he should strip fitter now and looks the type to improve as a 4yo. His trainer, William Haggas also runs Dal Horrisgle who drops in grade for his seasonal reappearance having won the last time he was seen in a handicap. This trip may be a little sharp for him these days though but it should provide a good pipe opener. Elwazir has a bit to prove but has run well when fresh in the past, while Kuwait Currency looks exposed off this mark and Wait Forever has his stamina to prove.
  1. Desert Icon
  2. Elwazir
