Verdict

The forecast for good-to-soft ground will concern connections of Gingili and What Happens Now. No further rain is anticipated and they threaten to serve up a treat on their current form. Both have their share of weight and AZURE FLY is picked to end a two year barren spell with his yard having made such a positive start to the campaign. The nine-year-old has produced some of his best performances following a break and lines up here on a career low mark in as easy a race as he has faced in some time.
  1. Azure Fly
  2. Gingili
  3. What Happens Now
