Forecasts

Group One Power (3/1), Sam Cooke (7/2), Spanish Kiss (4/1), Hms President (9/2), Graphite (18/1), Master The Stars (18/1), The Trader (18/1), Torcello (20/1), Plantadream (20/1), C'Est No Mour (25/1), Mancini (25/1), Restorer (28/1)

Verdict

Things didn't really pan out for SPANISH KISS in his hat-trick bid here a month ago, but he looked a handicapper going places prior to that, and given the way he travels this drop in trip is probably a good move. Group One Power is a very solid proposition, while Sam Cooke has it in him to win a race like this.

  1. SPANISH KISS
  2. GROUP ONE POWER
  3. SAM COOKE (IRE)
