Betting

Forecast

Ingenuity (9/4), Wondering Spirit (3/1), Lucky Lucky Man (7/2), Pacific Fleet (7/2), Alhawdaj (5/1), May Symphonic (12/1), Towton (18/1), Foxtrix (33/1), Ballynarry Lady (40/1), Money For Luck (66/1)

Verdict
INGENUITY brings a smart level of form to the table and is the preference here despite having to concede weight to many of his rivals. Wondering Spirit is beautifully bred and could be the danger down at the other end of the weights while Lucky Lucky Man is respected despite a below par effort last time out.
  1. Ingenuity
  2. Wondering Spirit
  3. Lucky Lucky Man
