Forecasts

A Few Bob Short (5/1), Dixie Highway (5/1), Creative Talent (11/2), A Place Apart (6/1), Greengage (6/1), Ineffable (8/1), Match My Fire (10/1), Sbraase (12/1), Cavelli (16/1), Beat Of The Sea (16/1), Greanta (25/1), Let It Go Papa (25/1), U S Navy Seal (25/1), Molly Kaye (25/1), My Amazing One (28/1), Loose Chippings (33/1)

Verdict

The consistent A FEW BOB SHORT can gain his first victory following some good efforts in recent starts. The selection has placed off a higher mark in the past and can see off A Place Apart who placed at Sligo earlier this month and has the forecast underfoot conditions to suit. Dixie Highway was in decent form earlier this year and can put a couple of disappointing efforts behind him by finishing third.
  1. A Few Bob Short
  2. A Place Apart
  3. Dixie Highway
