Forecast

Epona (13/8), Pendleton (2/1), Warning Fire (4/1), Jean Merci (10/1), Gunnabedun (14/1), Key To The Orient (33/1), Bobs Authority (50/1), Caledonia Lass (66/1), Silver Pass (80/1), God Of Dreams (100/1), Milabella (150/1)

Verdict
A poor opener where the form pick is clearly Epona, and she would be no surprise winner, while Pendleton and Gunnabedun are newcomers of interest. However, WARNING FIRE ran well for a long way on debut. She will have learned plenty there and could make significant improvement this time.
  1. Warning Fire
  2. Epona
  3. Pendleton
