Forecast

Conflagration (5/1), Super D J (5/1), Harbour Approach (7/1), Kachumba (7/1), Red Seeker (7/1), Slipstream (15/2), Alba Del Sole (8/1), Arnoul Of Metz (14/1), Musbaq (14/1), Possibly So (16/1), Viking Way (20/1), Bbob Alula (25/1), Lady Of Petra (25/1), Pass Mark (33/1), Elite Shadow (33/1), Affluence (40/1), Paco Bleue (40/1), Pas De Blanc (66/1)

Verdict
A very modest finale can go to the in-form KATCHUMBA, who has won her last two starts in good style and has been presented with a very solid chance of completing the hat-tick in this sort of company. Conflagration is another who holds a decent profile for a race at this level and along with Red Seeker and Super D J completes the shortlist of prime contenders.
  1. Kachumba
  2. Conflagration
  3. Red Seeker
