Forecast

Detachment (11/4), Etisalat (4/1), Pioneering (7/1), Beverley Bullet (8/1), Christopher Wood (8/1), Billy Roberts (10/1), Leigh's Law (11/1), Kannapolis (12/1), Laqab (12/1), Echo Cove (14/1), Fashaak (14/1), Running Cloud (14/1), Showboating (16/1), Destroyer (16/1), Billy Wedge (16/1), Pacific Salt (33/1), Paparazzi (33/1)

Verdict
A tough race to call, but ETISALAT had excuses last time and he is given the vote here with a good draw and the potential for improvement both in headgear and over this trip. Leigh's Law is another who needs to bounce back, but could go close if doing so, while Detachment, Laqab, Destroyer and Echo Cove are among others of interest.
  1. Etisalat
  2. Leigh's Law
  3. Detachment
