Betting

Forecast

Havana Grey (15/8), Sioux Nation (5/1), Different League (5/1), Take Cover (11/2), Hit The Bid (7/1), Battle Of Jericho (12/1), Gorane (20/1), Son Of Rest (22/1), Now You're Talking (40/1)

Verdict
HAVANA GREY was an impressive course and distance winner earlier in the campaign and while he's been a little below par in recent starts, a return to softer conditions could see him in a much better light. Take Cover is a consistent sort and proven at this level while Battle Of Jericho gives the impression we haven't seen the best of him yet and may be capable of a big run despite being down the order on jockey bookings.
  1. Havana Grey
  2. Take Cover
  3. Battle Of Jericho
