Forecasts

Phil's Magic (7/2), Black Zambezi (4/1), Rock On Fruity (6/1), Definite Soldier (7/1), Supreme Vinnie (15/2), Tulsa Jack (8/1), Baily Moon (9/1), Riviera Sun (10/1), Plain Talking (12/1), Mr Boss Man (14/1), Net D'Ecosse (14/1), Hash Brown (14/1), Marinero (16/1), Ronava (20/1), Stonehall Jack (25/1), Marchese Marconi (25/1)

Verdict

This is wide open, and plenty come here holding some sort of chance. MARINERO has his share of weight but has the class to carry it, and looks to have been laid out for this. As long as the ground doesn't get too deep, he can go close. Tulsa Jack won this last year and is another that looks to have been brought to the boil at the right time; he can make a bold effort to retain his title. Phil's Magic and Hash Brown look the best of the rest.
  1. Marinero
  2. Tulsa Jack
  3. Definite Soldier
