Betting

Forecast

Cartwright (9/4), Speak Easy (5/2), Discorama (5/1), Hardline (6/1), Impact Factor (6/1), Makitorix (12/1), Defi Bleu (14/1), Tara Dylan (16/1)

Verdict
Plenty to like about the front-running tactics of the improving Impact Factor from the Jessica Harrington yard but will have to be at the top of his game to worry C&D winner CARTWRIGHT who sprinted away from a competitive 19-runner field earlier this month to win by 16L. Speak Easy and Hardline can battle for the minor honors.
  1. Cartwright
  2. Speak Easy
  3. Impact Factor
