Betting

Forecast

Mount Tabora (15/8), Third World (11/4), Wargrave (4/1), Power Of Now (4/1), Zander (10/1), Always Running (33/1), Dromod Lad (50/1), Rex Place (66/1), Muntahez (66/1), Wild Willie Wynne (66/1), Live Show (66/1)

Verdict

The application of blinkers can see MOUNT TABORA record his first victory having been narrowly beaten over this trip last time out. Representing a leading yard underfoot conditions are forecast to be in his favour and he can see off Third World who represents a yard who have won this seven times since 2008. Power Of Now caught the eye on debut recently and he can finish one place better than when fourth on that occasion.
  1. Mount Tabora
  2. Third World
  3. Power Of Now
