Verdict

Shadow Of Hercules and Steelyeyed like to get on with things from the front and could possibly make the early running here. If the front two battle for the lead it could possibly set the race up for the likes of the consistent Marino Marvel, course winner Indian Tomahawk and the dependable J P McManus-owned PASS THE BALL.
  1. Pass The Ball
  2. Marino Marvel
  3. Steelyeyed
