Forecasts

Circling Moon (5/4), Smashed (3/1), King Calypso (7/2), Galileo's Spear (5/1), Sir Pass I Am (10/1), Cry Wolf (20/1), Benbecula (40/1), Skylark Lady (66/1)

Verdict

It is hard to make a case for Benbecula and Skylark Lady, but most of the others can be given chances. Sir Pass I Am would be a huge danger if returning to last year's C&D form, but he still has a bit to prove and the percentage call looks to be CIRCLING MOON, who has been running well for his new trainer and can return to wining ways. Galileo's Spear and King Calypso look closely matched, while Smashed is the dark horse of the field on his handicap debut in first-time cheekpieces.
  1. Circling Moon
  2. Sir Pass I Am
  3. Galileo's Spear
