Forecast

Zubaidah (3/1), Dark Phantom (7/2), Powered (4/1), Avocadeau (5/1), Cold Fusion (8/1), Aristocracy (10/1), Don Padeja (12/1), Hong Kong Joe (12/1), L'ami De Rouge (14/1), Rezwaan (25/1), Ruzeiz (25/1), Dalavand (25/1)

Verdict
Plenty in this that have struggled to win and there are some long losing runs to contend with also and that hardly makes it an appealing betting medium. Cold Fusion might have been a little flattered last time out but did shape quite nicely and it won’t surprise to see her make an impression here. Avocadeau and Zubaidah have a better chance than most here but both like to go from the front and that could set the race up for a closer such as L'AMI DE ROUGE. She looked a little unlucky last time out in a messy race and with a better run through she could be better than that last run showed.
  1. L'ami De Rouge
  2. Cold Fusion
  3. Zubaidah
