Betting

Forecast

Al Hamdany (6/4), Celestial Spheres (5/2), Rainbow Rebel (9/2), Berrahri (11/2), Canberra Cliffs (16/1), Fanoulpifer (50/1)

Verdict
Berrahri from stall 4 likes to get on with things and will possibly lead in the early stages under the capable 7lb claimer Nicola Currie. The three-year-old will though find it difficult to hang to the lead with distance winner Al Hamdany, Mark Johnston's Rainbow Rebel making ground from in behind and CELESTIAL SPHERES who had a terrible draw to overcome last time and can make up for that here.
  1. Celestial Spheres
  2. Rainbow Rebel
  3. Al Hamdany
