Forecasts

Three Majors (4/1), Tee Ranger (5/1), Boxer Dunford (5/1), Dandy Dude (11/2), Kodiac's Back (11/2), Bluesbreaker (8/1), Fashionable Man (10/1), Eacharn (12/1), Cracking Name (12/1), Bella Rua (12/1), Pillar (12/1), Alfirak (16/1), Oor Jock (25/1), Nam (28/1), Lydia's Joy (33/1), Desert Train (33/1), Dravid (66/1)

Verdict

Although beaten on his last two starts BLUESBREAKER is a solid choice here given he won over C&D last month and it's possible stall 13 may not be enough to stop him. The solid and consistent Boxer Dunford and C&D winner last month Three Majors can hit the frame.
  1. Bluesbreaker
  2. Boxer Dunford
  3. Three Majors
