Forecasts

Boris Grishenko (13/8), Chess Grand Master (7/2), Poet Power (6/1), Dayna Moss (7/1), Distribution (8/1), Analytical Mindset (10/1), Cool Robin (16/1), Trump Sixteen (20/1), Mount Guista (20/1), Zero Ten (33/1), Diamond Getaway (33/1), Epsilon Indi (50/1), Kosovo (50/1), Dryennais (50/1), Lough Navar (100/1), Tungsten Kid (100/1)

Verdict

A few of these will no doubt go non to much better things if they can live up to their breeding. The likes of Poet Power, Boris Grishenko, and Analytical Mindset all make plenty of appeal and any one may prove good enough to grab this by the scruff of the neck. However, CHESS GRAND MASTER is a regally-bred individual that really caught the eye on debut and may just be good enough to force the issue to go his way on this occasion.
  1. Chess Grand Master
  2. Poet Power
  3. Boris Grishenko
