Forecasts

Zolfo (9/4), Isle Road (7/2), Zoltan Varga (4/1), Cahill (11/2), King Muro (10/1), Omega Springs (14/1), Mariners Moon (16/1), Welsh Designe (25/1), Sky of Stars (25/1)

Verdict

A mildly competitive contest for the grade and connections have every right to expect a better run from Zoltan Varga as he tries fences for the second time having been well supported on his fencing debut. Disappointing that time better is expected here but is yet to win under Rules and ISLE ROAD is preferred given his two wins earlier in the year. His 4th at Cartmel last time is better than it looks having been sent for home too early on the long run-in and he’s clearly better than that if given a more controlled ride. Omega Springs is no banker to repeat his last run while Zolfo looks to need further unless he is given a positive ride. Cahill is the dark horse of the race.
  1. Isle Road
  2. Zoltan Varga
  3. Cahill
