Forecast

Rose Anjou (9/2), You Gotta Move (11/2), Secret Path (6/1), Guanabara Bay (7/1), Botanical Lady (8/1), Full Shilling (9/1), Shabra Emperor (10/1), Hard Times (12/1), Mzuri (12/1), Smiling Emily (12/1), Takeachanceonme (14/1), Busy Bush (14/1), Our Manekineko (16/1), Annagassan (20/1), Sister Slew (20/1), Romantic (25/1), Pure Happiness (33/1), Seeking Truth (33/1), Noble Aussie (100/1)

Verdict
Rose Anjou comes here in terrific form having gone close in all three runs this season. She seems sure to be right in the mix now although it is a concern that she has crept up 8lb in the ratings without managing to get a win on the board. YOU GOTTA MOVE on the other hand did just that over this trip at Naas last time out, shedding the maiden tag at the 11th time of asking and confining Rose Anjou to second spot as he did. There's just a 1lb swing at the weights and, on just his fifth start on turf, the selection could have more to offer. Full Shilling is one to note in the betting on first start for new connections while Secret Path and Mzuri could hold place claims.
