Gowran Park (good-to-firm) winner over this distance in June. Struggled on his two most recent starts and needs to return to form if he's to take this contest.

Betting

Forecast

Coviglia (13/8), Markhan (3/1), Lucky Violet (5/1), Texas Radio (8/1), Steelriver (10/1), Clary (10/1), Island Flame (12/1), Rioja Day (25/1), Fidelma Moon (50/1), Yair Hill (80/1), Plastiki (125/1)

Verdict

MARKHAN is well handicapped on his old form and he is taken to defy top weight following a couple of promising efforts in recent times. The selection represents a leading jumps yard and can get the better of Lucky Violet who has been in good form of late and can get the better of Coviglia in the battle for second.
  1. Markhan
