Forecasts

Sir Carno (7/4), Montys Meadow (4/1), Bee A Beneficiary (4/1), The Gatechecker (6/1), Mary Frances (7/1), Seskinane (10/1), O Ceallaigh (25/1), Whatever Jacksays (25/1), Racing Pulse (25/1), Winter Breeze (25/1)

Verdict

It is possible that O Ceallaigh and Whatever Jacksays could dispute the lead here in the early stages with Mary Frances chasing behind. The early speed in the conditions could be an advantage to bottom weight Bee A Beneficiary and Montys Meadow to arrive late in to the race with Gordon Elliotts SIR CARNO who can land a hat-trick of wins here.
  1. Sir Carno
  2. Montys Meadow
  3. Bee A Beneficiary
