Betting

Forecast

Mojambo (4/1), Ellona (5/1), Amor Fati (6/1), Air Of Nobility (6/1), Downtown Diva (7/1), Haunting Vocals (9/1), Rockfish (9/1), Devastating Power (12/1), Taylor Velvet (16/1), Footstepsintime (20/1), Marmalade N Toast (20/1), Gillabbey Rock (25/1)

Verdict

Not the strongest nursery ever to take place at this course but one that may be within the reach of DOWNTOWN DIVA, who sports a tongue tie for the first time and may just enough in the locker to see off the threats posed by Ellona and Air Of Nobility, who make the most appeal from a modest bunch if rivals.
  1. Downtown Diva
  2. Ellona
  3. Air Of Nobility
