Keep Believing (7/2), Ecoeye (9/2), Decision Time (5/1), Nanabad (11/2), Sweet Company (8/1), Youceeyouceecee (10/1), An Saighdiur (12/1), Our Anniversary (14/1), Ask Katie (16/1), Short Stacked (16/1), Cosmic Symbol (25/1), Spiritual Law (33/1)

Verdict

With An Saighdiur the lone leader here with possibly Ecoeye and Keep Believing in behind, though the latter may have to settle for a mid-division position coming from the widest draw. The early speed in the conditions could be beneficial for Nanabad and DECISION TIME who, despite the drop in trip, can come off the pace to land the spoils under Sean Davis.
