Forecast

Key Victory (5/4), Old Persian (9/4), Stephensons Rocket (7/1), Graffiti Master (8/1), Petrus (14/1), Highbrow (16/1), Lynwood Gold (22/1), Roland Rocks (100/1)

Verdict
The form of KEY VICTORY's win here towards the end of last season is certainly eye-catching, with the runner-up winning each of his next three starts and several other subsequent winners in the race. He's taken to win this for a yard that have a good strike-rate here and have started the season in flying form. Stablemate, Old Persian can't be ruled out after an impressive course and distance success month while last Graffiti Master rates as the type to do better this year,
  1. Key Victory
  2. Old Persian
  3. Graffiti Master
