Forecasts

Equus Flight (4/5), Motueka (2/1), Desert Retreat (7/1), Super Moon (10/1), An Scairp (14/1), Cojack (33/1), Kalangadoo (66/1), Hard Knocks (100/1)

Verdict

Not a strong contest by any means. Desert Retreat is of minor interest back under rules for his new yard having won a point-to-point last time. Motueka has moved to a yard that do well with recruits from elsewhere and is certainly of interest. Slight preference is for EQUUS FLIGHT who has run consistently well on his last three runs and can gained a deserved victory in this slightly weaker race.
  1. Equus Flight
  2. Motueka
  3. Desert Retreat
