Forecast

Baron Du Plessis (2/1), Mondo Cane (6/1), Midnight Mustang (13/2), Silent Man (13/2), Derryfadda (7/1), Like Sully (8/1), Midnight Gem (8/1), Heurtevent (16/1), Chill In The Wood (25/1), The Jugopolist (25/1), What A Laugh (25/1)

Verdict
Not a strong affair and plenty of these come here with a bit to prove. A shock result would not be a surprise. Mondo Cane is sure to run his race and Silent Man could go well again on the back of a break. The selection and not a strong one is BARON DU PLESSIS. Unlike most of these his best days are likely still ahead of him and the drop in trip today could work the trick.
  1. Baron Du Plessis
  2. Mondo Cane
  3. Silent Man
