Forecasts

Excellent Team (10/3), Jamacho (4/1), Aardwolf (4/1), Red Hot Chilly (6/1), Crushed (9/1), G'day Aussie (14/1), Chieftain's Choice (14/1), Nachi Falls (14/1), Affaire D'Honneur (20/1)

Verdict

Quite a competitive finale but the vote goes to the potentially favourably handicapped G'day Aussie who showed signs he retains ability on his run here a couple of weeks ago. Hat-trick seeking Aardwolf has plenty of weight but is a proper danger, and Crushed may well bounce back after a luckless effort last time. Affaire d'Honneur is thrown in on his old form but we remain to be convinced the old ability is still there, while Excellent Team and Jamacho are both respected in what may prove to be a good finish.
  1. G'day Aussie
  2. Aardwolf
  3. Crushed
