Forecast

Ballesteros (3/1), Come On Dave (7/2), Lydia's Place (9/2), Normal Equilibrium (5/1), Invincible Ridge (5/1), Fujin (8/1), Quick Look (11/1), Royal Mezyan (14/1), Silvanus (16/1), Four Dragons (20/1), Brother Tiger (25/1), Monte Cinq (33/1)

Verdict
Most sprints around here are about getting a good track position and Come On Dave who likes to go forward is well drawn in stall 4 to blast off in front but may face some competition from a few of these. Normal Equilibrium certainly had the run of the race when winning on his penultimate start around here and looks sure to challenge for the lead along with Fujin who has an attractive turf mark to race off. BALLESTEROS is given the vote though in the hope that he can capitalise on a lowly mark and get some luck to find a gap in the closing stages and gain a long awaited success.
  1. Ballesteros
  2. Come On Dave
  3. Normal Equilibrium
