Forecast

Yankee Stadium (9/4), Toora Loora (7/2), Makeen (9/2), Bint Australia (5/1), Raymond (13/2), Desert Emperor (8/1), Floating Rock (16/1), Raiff (33/1), Strong Team (250/1), Jeane De Bellville (300/1)

Verdict

YANKEE STADIUM is the clear form pick and, while he's had plenty of chances, he's still lightly raced for his current stable, so he gets the nod in a novice where plenty have something to recommend them. Bint Australia is of interest starting out for James Fanshawe, while fairly useful hurdler Floating Rock shaped better than the result on his Flat debut at this course a week ago.

  1. YANKEE STADIUM (IRE)
  2. BINT AUSTRALIA (IRE)
  3. FLOATING ROCK (GER)
