Forecast

Five Helmets (6/4), Pesci (7/4), One To Go (9/4), Smart Illusion (11/2), Spirit Kingdom (6/1), Abie's Hollow (7/1), Ventura Bay (10/1), Carlow Boy (33/1)

Verdict
Mark Johnston has a good record in this race winning three of the last six runnings but he may be pushed to take this again with Spirit Kingdom looking a better AW performer although the 7f trip will suit better. One To Go is the obvious contender here after his solid 2nd on his nursery debut but he has to cope with a drop in trip having looked as though he needs further although the handicapper has left him on the same mark. Smart Illusion looks one of the possible improvers in this but a chance is taken with similar type in ABIE’S HOLLOW who was beaten 7L last time over C&D but showed some promise for handicaps.
  1. Abie's Hollow
  2. One To Go
  3. Smart Illusion
