Forecast

Gun Case (11/10), Bonnie Gals (8/1), Someone Exciting (8/1), Chaucer's Tale (9/1), Searanger (10/1), African Grey (11/1), Nelson's Bay (16/1), Stardrifter (20/1), Willbeme (20/1), Gaelic Wizard (25/1), Arizona Sunrise (33/1), Let Right Be Done (33/1), George Bailey (50/1), Nifty Niece (66/1)

Verdict
Not many of this crew inspire confidence and so GUN CASE might be just about the safest option. He was narrowly denied over C&D on his penultimate start and while his most recent run was less pleasing, the application of new headgear may help him to get the job done now. Like many of these, Gaelic Wizard isn't reliable but he is capable of winning and hasn't had many chances on the AW of late. A turf winner in August, he could go well. Someone Exciting should be suited by this drop in trip and while Arizona Sunrise has been poor on the turf lately, he's on a career-low handicap mark now back in this sphere and finds a weakish contest if he can exploit it.
  1. Gun Case
  2. Gaelic Wizard
  3. Someone Exciting
