Forecast

Fairymount Boy (6/4), Lake Takapuna (7/2), Das Mooser (6/1), Bendanella (7/1), Bellgrove (12/1), Hard Bought (25/1), Sierra Law (25/1), Burning Issues (33/1), Jonathan Wild (33/1), House Limit (50/1)

Verdict
Trainer Michael Hourigan has FAIRYMOUNT BOY in fine form at the moment and it appears it will take a lot more than an 8lb rise in the weights to stop the improving nine-year-old on his way to landing the prize here. Last time out beaten favourite, Das Mooser in first time tongue-tie and Lake Takapuna on stable debut can battle for the minors.
  1. Fairymount Boy
  2. Das Mooser
  3. Lake Takapuna
