Forecasts

The Knot Is Tied (11/10), General Zoff (9/2), Imperial Focus (6/1), Leodis (7/1), Shes Queen (8/1), Buonarroti (14/1), Simafar (16/1), In Focus (25/1)

Verdict

Still early days for General Zoff and he should be capable of improving past his current mark. Leodis bolted up last time and now starts life for a new yard so is very much respected. Clear preference though is for THE KNOT IS TIED who only narrowly failed in the hat-trick bid last time and can get back to winning ways here.
  1. The Knot Is Tied
  2. General Zoff
  3. Leodis
