Forecasts

Some Neck (7/2), Major Destination (6/1), Lasoscar (7/1), High Nellie (8/1), Wicked Willy (8/1), Drumacoo (8/1), Sutton Manor (8/1), Artic Pearl (12/1), Colms Dream (12/1), Heron Heights (16/1), Rogue Angel (16/1), Fine Rightly (16/1), Westerner Point (16/1), Mr Boss Man (20/1), Kylecrue (28/1)

Verdict

A wide open handicap. With the promise of more to come over fences, a chance is taken on the fitness of MAJOR DESTINATION, who hasn't been seen out for some time but won his final start with a bit in hand and could be progressive this time around. Colms Dream looks like he may have this as one of his targets this year and shouldn't be discounted despite some modest looking form figures. Mr Boss Man, Lasoscar and High Nellie are just three others to consider in a tricky contest for punters to solve.
  1. Major Destination
  2. Colms Dream
  3. Mr Boss Man
