Forecast

Invincible Army (5/2), James Garfield (10/3), Enjazaat (11/2), Nebo (15/2), Lansky (15/2), Grand Koonta (9/1), Staxton (14/1), No I'm Easy (25/1), Helvetian (33/1), Rebel Streak (50/1)

Verdict
INVINCIBLE ARMY is likely to be hard to beat provided the ground stays on the firm side and his win at Kempton last time out broke the track record. Clive Cox won this last year with star sprinter Harry Angel so it could be significant Grand Koonta finds himself in this race and connections have called him a non-runner several times of late, suggesting he may want faster ground that he should get here. Lanksy is another interesting runner who will appreciate the faster ground and may prove best of the rest in a competitive affair.
  1. Invincible Army
  2. Grand Koonta
  3. Lansky
