Forecast

Erik The Red (6/1), Londinium (6/1), Appeared (6/1), Game Starter (6/1), Speedo Boy (13/2), Red Galileo (7/1), Al Neksh (9/1), Fidaawy (11/1), Amazing Red (12/1), Landsman (14/1), Mukhayyam (14/1), Moonmeister (20/1), Dance King (25/1), Manjaam (33/1), Master Of Finance (50/1), Song Of Love (100/1)

Verdict
AMAZING RED and Game Starter are both entirely unexposed and narrow preference is for the former who only goes up 4lb for his latest win. Mukhayyam was better than the bare result suggested in the Shergar Cup last time and should do better with David Allan taking back over in the saddle.
  1. Amazing Red
  2. Game Starter
  3. Mukhayyam
