Forecast

Geranium (3/1), Phoenix Approach (4/1), Sweet Reward (5/1), Angel's Whisper (7/1), Destroyer (10/1), Locked N' Loaded (10/1), Luna Magic (11/1), Balgair (12/1), Stringybark Creek (16/1), Make Haste Slowly (18/1), Biotic (20/1), One To Go (33/1), Herodotus (80/1)

Verdict

A solid-looking handicap with the vote in favour of PHOENIX APPROACH. Tim Easterby's 3-y-o scored in good style at Beverley in August and did well to finish as close as he did when fourth back at that venue last time. His mark remains a workable one and another bold showing looks on the cards. Sweet Reward is of a very similar ilk and is feared, ahead of Luna Magic and Angel's Whisper.

  1. PHOENIX APPROACH (IRE)
  2. SWEET REWARD (IRE)
  3. LUNA MAGIC
