Forecasts

Explain (5/2), Cosmic Ray (11/4), Gabrial The Tiger (4/1), Grand Inquisitor (7/1), Tavener (8/1), Heir To A Throne (9/1), Khelman (16/1), Monteverdi (20/1), Majestic Moon (20/1), God Willing (20/1), Eqleem (25/1), British Embassy (33/1)

Verdict

Not an easy handicap to unravel and as with all big-field handicaps around this tight circuit luck in running will play a big part. Majestic Moon has been in good form of late without winning but he may find it hard getting to the front from a wide draw and he may find competition for the lead from the likes of British Embassy and last year’s winner GABRIAL THE TIGER who could be well placed here to repeat his win. Cosmic Ray could not have been in better this season but he does face a stiff task off this mark and Explain along with Khelman look to be the dangers with God Willing worth keeping an eye on in this market off this mark.
  1. Gabrial The Tiger
  2. Khelman
  3. God Willing
