Forecasts

Beyond Measure (8/11), Shaluna (11/8), Ambivalent About (18/1), Celestial Chimes (25/1), Jennifer Chimes (33/1), Sprogzilla (66/1), Running Squaw (80/1)

Verdict

BEYOND MEASURE sets a reasonable standard on form in what looks like a particularly weak contest. Shaluna performed okay in a couple of races before Christmas and may be able to bounce back if this trip doesn't prove too sharp while Running Squaw may be best of the rest but making a debut at the age of nine-years-old is off-putting.
