Forecast

Bird For Life (6/4), Garcon De Soleil (7/2), Thahab Ifraj (5/1), Wally's Wisdom (6/1), Hong Kong Joe (11/1), Takeitfromalady (11/1), General Brook (16/1), Xhale (20/1), Roy Rocket (20/1), Munsarim (25/1), Joshlee (50/1)

Verdict
BIRD FOR LIFE was justifiably demoted following a judge's error last time but can gain compensation in this. He was eventually just foiled by a well-treated rival and finished clear of the third. Munsarim showed glimpses of his old self last time and has each-way potential along with Garcon Du Soleil who has reserved his best for this circuit. Thahab Ifraj is another who can be considered now dropping in grade off a reasonable mark.
