Forecast

Kuiper Belt (4/9), Weightfordave (4/1), Chanceanotherfive (4/1), Coolgreine (50/1), Starshell (100/1), Psychology (125/1)

Verdict
Hard to escape the claims of KUIPER BELT, who has all the ticks in the right boxes and looks very much the safest option in a weak event. Weightfordave has done well since joining his current trainer and might be able to provide the selection with the sternest challenge if the concession of weight doesn't become too much of a factor on the anticipated ground. Chanceanotherfive has improvement to find but is still probably the best of the rest.
  1. Kuiper Belt
