Verdict

Marino Marvel likes to get on with things from the front but may have Bog War, Alhellal and Lambikin for company in the early stages. The tactics upfront could set the race up for Rodger Sweeney's GLIB SPEECH who finished a promising second of 13 last month while Schindlers Ark and Shake The Bucket can hit the frame.
  1. Glib Speech
  2. Shake The Bucket
  3. Schindlers Ark
