Forecast

South Pacific (5/6), Boston Bruin (10/3), Pepperoni Pete (8/1), Claim The Lady (11/1), Western Australia (14/1), Zarafshan (16/1), Sir Perceval (25/1), Larmour (33/1), Gustavus Weston (66/1), Olympic Honour (100/1)

Verdict
SOUTH PACIFIC narrowly failed here last time out but this half-brother to two Group One winners can get off the mark here with more improvement almost certainly in his locker. Jessica Harrington has two possibilities and there isn't a great deal between Boston Bruin who steps up in trip and Claim The Lady going the other way. Zarafshan is the most appealing of the newcomers and this beautifully bred colt could quite easily prove very smart indeed.
  1. South Pacific
  2. Boston Bruin
  3. Zarafshan
