Forecasts

Nimitz (9/4), Carried (4/1), California Lad (4/1), Alcander (6/1), Pari Passu (9/1), Schoolboy Error (12/1), Sharjah (14/1), Thomas O'Malley (16/1), Pushaq (16/1), Cresendo (18/1), Long Journey Home (33/1), Waves (33/1), Ancient Astronaut (33/1), Oromo (50/1)

Verdict

Carried likes to get on with things and will possible lead the field in the closer with Sharjah and Pari Passu chasing behind. The early speed like seven days ago could play to the strengths of the in form CALIFORNIA LAD who travelled well before winning comfortably off a strong pace over C&D. Another C&D winner Nimitz and front runner Carried can hit the frame.
  1. California Lad
  2. Nimitz
  3. Carried
