Forecasts

Swamp Fox (5/1), Lagostovegas (6/1), Sweet Company (6/1), Mountain Rock (6/1), Automated (8/1), Wonder Laish (8/1), Benkei (10/1), Rashaan (10/1), Alton Bay (10/1), Powersbomb (12/1), The Graduate (14/1), Whiskey Sour (16/1), Miles To Memphis (16/1), Hidden Cyclone (16/1), St Lawrence Gap (20/1), Shinghari (22/1), Digeanta (25/1), Sir Ector (33/1), Elishpour (33/1), Ezanak (33/1), Argus (33/1), Zafayan (33/1), Winter Lion (50/1)

Verdict

Top-rated on the official figures, ZAFAYAN already holds a few of these and doesn't have too much to find to cope with his burden at the weights. Automated and Lagostovegas are also in with sizeable chances, while Ezanak would be dangerous to dismiss if the betting shows him in a good light.
  1. Zafayan
  2. Automated
  3. Lagostovegas
