Betting

Forecast

Pure Action (8/13), Robe Of Honour (3/1), Share The Honour (9/2), Estrenar (14/1), Nulife (14/1), Baby Bellini (25/1), Bondi Bull (50/1), Rebel Power (50/1), Patricks Boy (50/1), Coral Pearl (66/1), Amazing Mary (66/1)

Verdict

Pure Action boasts the best form in the book and should improve for this step up in trip. Those that have run already will not strike fear into him but a couple of the newcomers might do just that. Share The Honour cost a lot of money as a yearling and jockey bookings suggest he'll have his chance on debut but another Shamardal gelding in ROBE OF HONOUR might be the one to grab this prize. He's got some smart form in his pedigree and can make a winning start in the Godolphin silks. 1. Robe Of Honour 2. Pure Action 3. Share The Honour
