Forecast

How's My Friend (5/1), Ambion Lane (7/1), Bobonyx (8/1), Black Narcissus (8/1), Mazurati (8/1), Try It Sometime (9/1), Touch Of Steel (10/1), Snowball (12/1), Magical Man (12/1), Basford Ben (12/1), Over My Head (16/1), Touch Screen (16/1), Cheat The Cheater (33/1), Big Time Frank (50/1)

Verdict

Two previous winners of this Magical Man and Cheat The Cheater make the lineup. The latter has lost his way of late, but Magical Man will have conditions to suit and will appreciate the drop in grade having run poorly last time. How's My Friend, Basford Ben and Snowball go well here and have to be respected, but BOBONYX makes most appeal. The eight-year-old has gone well in two better races than this lately and his ability to stay beyond three miles will stand him well on this circuit.
  1. Bobonyx
  2. How's My Friend
  3. Magical Man
