Forecasts

Small World (9/4), Let's Twist Again (5/1), Vinnie Luck (5/1), War Of The Pennys (8/1), Antimatter (12/1), Massinis Adventure (12/1), Mother's Best (14/1), Megara (14/1), Walkers Point (16/1), Cadawill (16/1), Northern Meeting (16/1), Chosen Hour (18/1), Tigroney (25/1), Forever Dylan (25/1), Artic Fever (33/1), Cootamundra (66/1)

Verdict

Quantity rather than quality here and a race to tread carefully with. Megara would hold a good chance if building on his fourth here last time but whether he'll be as effective over this trip remains to be seen. Preference is for LET'S TWIST AGAIN, who has an obvious chance of taking this if in the same form as Navan last time. He looks progressive and can go in again. Small World and Massini's Adventure are others to consider.
  1. Let's Twist Again
  2. Small World
  3. Massinis Adventure
