Forecasts

Greenpanda (4/1), Nothing To Lose (9/2), Delegating (5/1), Thunder Speed (6/1), Empress Lyla (6/1), Comhghairdeas (6/1), Rich History (7/1), High Altitude (8/1), Dinky Inty (12/1), Cool Colonnade (16/1), The Mcgregornator (16/1), Twist Of Magic (20/1), Desert Dancer (25/1), Vocal Response (25/1), De La Vega (33/1), Vanderbilt (40/1), Glenmoore (66/1), Suzy Vega (100/1)

Verdict

Several of these have decent claims on the pick of their form - shortlist contenders include: Empress Lyla, Thunder Speed and The Mcgregornator, who are all capable of holding their own in this company. However, NOTHING TO LOSE has thrived on being kept busy and may be worth one more throw of the dice whilst he is on an upward curve. The second reserve, Greenpanda, would also be interesting for one of the places if she gets a run.
  1. Nothing To Lose
  2. Empress Lyla
  3. Thunder Speed
