Forecast

Drill (2/1), Mekong (10/3), Infrastructure (7/2), Burgonet (11/2), Blazing Saddles (6/1), King Lud (7/1), Mandalayan (8/1), Technological (16/1)

Verdict

A good prize at stake so it is no surprise to see a competitive line-up. Infrastructure may be a maiden, but is a talented one and the best is yet to come from him, while top-weight Mandalayan shaped well behind a progressive sort last time and is not out of it. Drill is the type of colt his yard excels with and has to be taken seriously, but BURGONET showed such battling qualities when winning over 2f shorter at this venue last time that she has to be the selection off only 2lb higher. Mekong should be suited by this step up in trip and looks a big danger.
  1. Burgonet
  2. Mekong
  3. Infrastructure
