Betting

Forecast

Mekong (3/1), Rude Awakening (3/1), Elegiac (3/1), Sacred Path (9/2), King Lud (7/1), Zilara (12/1), Bayshore Freeway (28/1)

Verdict

It is reasonable to assume King Lud will be on the premises again, whilst the Mark Johnston bandwagon is doubly represented by recent winners Elegiac and Bayshore Freeway. Rude Awakening should get a more honest gallop than last time but this looks set to fought out between Mekong and SACRED PATH. The former was runner-up in a hot race run in a quick time at Salisbury under today's rider and has further victories in him. On this occasion he may have to give second best to the Gosden filly who won a small maiden last time, a ploy the trainer used with her relatives Forever Now and To Eternity before they went on to better things.
  1. Sacred Path
  2. Mekong
