Forecast

Tennesse Waltz (7/2), Elusive Approach (5/1), Black Agnes (7/1), Manorov (8/1), Set To Fire (10/1), Purple Party (10/1), Roter Baron (11/1), Three Majors (12/1), World's Greatest (12/1), Captain K (12/1), Our Max (14/1), Annagassan (14/1), The Dancing Lord (14/1), Shelbe (25/1), Sister Slew (33/1), Ebony Princess (50/1), French Quarter (50/1)

Verdict
TENNESSEE WALTZ has been fairly consistent of late and is just 1lb higher than when narrowly going down over C&D two starts back. The booking of Smullen might well turn out to be worth more than that minimum weight increase and he can take the finale. Elusive Approach was an eye-catcher in maiden company last time out and can be given a fair claim on these terms of getting off the mark. Black Agnes, second in an apprentice contest a week ago, will have a chance if replicating that run while filly World's Greatest was also noted in apprentice company a fortnight ago and is respected off the same mark here. Manorov scored here in September off a higher mark and has generally been consistent since, ensuring he completes the shortlist.
