Forecasts

Born By The Sea (9/2), Acclamatio (5/1), A Place Apart (11/2), Buffalo Blues (7/1), Happy Company (8/1), Trump Card (8/1), Ilikehim (10/1), Dream Focus (10/1), Last Garrison (12/1), Pivot Bridge (14/1), Get Out Of Jail (20/1), Glenbank King (25/1), Johnny Carney (25/1), Call Me Pj (50/1)

Verdict

A tricky handicap chock full of horses who are capable at this level but much depends on their focus on the day. With that in mind only a speculative play on A PLACE APART is forward on this occasion. The fact that connections are keeping the selection busy is taken as a clue to his well being and he gets the nod as the one to with in preference to Glenbank King and the lightly weighted Pivot Bridge.
  1. A Place Apart
  2. Glenbank King
  3. Pivot Bridge
