Forecasts

A Smooth Criminal (11/4), Roses Queen (4/1), Flindt (9/2), Sunnyhill Lad (9/2), Dream Point (5/1), Cacique Royale (10/1), Marmalade N Toast (10/1), Dawn Hoofer (14/1), Wichita Line (14/1), Zeb City (20/1), Eos (20/1), Flamin Audi (50/1)

Verdict

A SMOOTH CRIMINAL broke his maiden last time out and he can make a winning handicap debut by defying top weight in this three-year-old contest. The selection shaped as if he'd appreciate the slight step up in distance and he can take this at the chief expense of Dream Point who is making her turf debut here having placed on the AW last time out. Roses Queen has run well on both starts so far this season and she is taken to finish third.
  1. A Smooth Criminal
  2. Dream Point
  3. Roses Queen
