Forecasts

Castlebrook (4/9), Massey's Wood (10/3), Heroesandvillains (8/1), Kalamkan (16/1), The Conditional (20/1), Robin The Hare (20/1), Caliption (25/1), Kingsteel (33/1), Ask And Answer (100/1), Annie Mae's Vision (100/1)

Verdict

Massey's Wood is possibly the most likely to make the early running here with Kingsteel and Calipton racing in behind. CASTLEBROOK has solid and consistent form in a Gowran Park bumper and a Cork maiden hurdle to be able to relish the step up in trip here.
  1. Castlebrook
  2. Kingsteel
  3. Massey's Wood
