Forecasts

Nulife (9/2), Pillard (11/2), Easy Boy (6/1), Temasek Star (13/2), Pivot Bridge (10/1), Whatever It Takes (10/1), Shake The Bucket (11/1), Catchy Lass (11/1), Ineffable (14/1), Getgo (14/1), Galuminous (14/1), Erquy (16/1), Phebes Dream (16/1), Carvelas (20/1), Challow (20/1), Bobeska (25/1), Kalann (25/1)

Verdict

Could be a duel for the lead here in the early stages of the contest with Temasek Star battling for position with Whateverittakes with Challow, Shake The Bucket or Carvelas chasing in behind. The early tactics could play to the strengths of Pillard and EASY BOY who can build on his ½L success earlier in the month.
  1. Easy Boy
  2. Pillard
  3. Nulife
