Forecast

Hurricane Rita (13/8), Beyeh (9/2), Hollywood All Star (9/2), Akula (10/1), Yasir (11/1), Hill Fort (12/1), Cocker (14/1), Royal Etiquette (20/1), Millen Dollar Man (25/1)

Verdict
Any Olly Murphy runner at this track needs respecting and his Hurricane Rita won well here last time out over C&D in a slightly better race and she must be respected again here. AKULA ran second in this race last year and that provided the springboard for two subsequent wins and she’s given a chance to go one better this time around. Hollywood All Star continues to drop in the handicap without really looking as though he’s likely to win while Bayeh is given a chance to improve on her 4th here last time out which was a better run than she’s turned in of late. Yasir is a rather moody sort who could take a hand while any market support for Hill Fort would be of interest.
  1. Akula
  2. Hurricane Rita
  3. Beyeh
