Forecast

Velocity Boy (2/1), Bentelimar (11/4), Dicosimo (7/2), Potters Point (4/1), Lion In His Heart (6/1), Annamatopoeia (7/1), Go It Alone (8/1), Aspen Colorado (14/1)

Verdict
No shortage of pacemakers here, and it may pay to look for something to come from off the pace. VELOCITY BOY is a bit more adaptable as far as tactics go and although he can front run, he's as happy held up, and can get on the board. Potters Point is a likely improver over this trip and looks a danger. Bentelimar is likely to need the run but would be a danger to all if fit and ready to go. Dicosimo clearly has ability but needs to dig in better when the pressure is applied.
  1. Velocity Boy
