Forecasts

Kildisart (3/1), Dieg Man (3/1), Le Patriote (4/1), Fixe Le Kap (6/1), Stowaway Magic (7/1), Friday Night Light (12/1), Vivas (16/1), Solstice Star (25/1), Court Minstrel (40/1)

Verdict

Not easy to solve. Kildisart looks to hold a decent chance, as there's the promise of more to come, but a chance is taken that the first time cheekpieces will work the oracle on LE PATRIOTE, as he looks just the type that Dr Newland does well with, and the promise he showed in a competitve Lanzarote can be fulfilled here. Friday Night Light and Dieg Man both a have a little more on their plates here but both are improving fast and neither can be discounted.
  1. Le Patriote
  2. Kildisart
  3. Dieg Man
