Forecasts

Chinese Spirit (4/1), Hasselnott (9/2), Markhan (5/1), Carnageo (5/1), War Department (13/2), Acrux (7/1), Branscombe (10/1), Redarna (10/1), Instant Attraction (10/1), Muirsheen Durkin (12/1), Pudding Chare (12/1), Restive (18/1), Dark Crystal (50/1), Columbia Kid (80/1)

Verdict

An ultra-competitive handicap for the grade with several of these having been capable of competing in much higher grades in the past. Instant Attraction, Carnageo and War Department would all qualify under that premise and all three have to be given plenty of respect here. Dark Crystal is a past winner of this contest but it’s last year’s winner CHINESE SPIRIT who is of the most interest on the back of his good Hamilton 2nd last time out; a repeat of that will see him go close here. Acrux may well prove to be the biggest danger he’s already won four races this year and even off this higher mark still looks as though he can be competitive.
  1. Chinese Spirit
