Forecasts

Townshend (6/4), Runyon Rattler (6/1), Venezia (7/1), Dasmyhoss (8/1), Dixie Highway (8/1), Emperor Waltz (9/1), Prince Charmin' (10/1), Whatsforuwontgobyu (12/1), Pivot Bridge (20/1), Nelson Road (20/1), Fern Owl (20/1), Massini's Trap (25/1), Micras (33/1)

Verdict

It could prove folly to overlook TOWNSHEND from a mark of just 67 back on the Flat and there's enough emphasis on stamina for this to suit him. Similarly, Venezia can go well here on quick ground while Emperor Waltz is proven around this venue and is feared alongside Fern Owl, who is also reverting to the Flat having been jumping.
  1. Townshend
