Forecasts

Global Domination (11/4), Dylanseoghan (3/1), Fly Home Harry (7/1), Riverside City (8/1), Tommy The Rascal (17/2), Over My Head (17/2), Hepijeu (9/1), What Larks (14/1)

Verdict

Only a fairly low grade contested which may well see a contested lead and that could hinder the chances of leading candidates like Flyhome Harry and Hepijeu with the latter looking vulnerable over trips such as this. GLOBAL DOMINATION disappointed last time but that was on his second run back from a long break and he’s given a chance to atone off a suitable mark. Over My Head ran well here last time out and in such a lowly race as this he could again be competitive despite being out of the handicap.
  1. Global Domination
  2. Over My Head
  3. Hepijeu
