Forecast

Magic Bear (9/2), Monsieur Joe (5/1), Tithonus (5/1), Imagine If (7/1), Enter The Red (8/1), Voge (8/1), Tylery Wonder (10/1), Maarek (10/1), Polly Douglas (12/1), Ducky Mallon (12/1), Sahreej (16/1), A Few Dollars More (16/1), Spirit Quartz (20/1)

Verdict
Plenty of speed from the lower part of the draw with Tylery Wonder, Sahreej and Spirit Quartz all expected to be up with the pace in the early part of the race with Tithonus and A Few Dollars More showing plenty of early dash. The early tempo could be beneficial to the improving MAGIC BEAR who will be doing her best work at the business end of the race.
  1. Magic Bear
  2. Tithonus
  3. Maarek
