Forecasts

Golazo (4/7), Abacadabras (5/2), Bathiva (10/3), Behind The Curtain (5/1), Chapmanshype (10/1), Pin Point Parity (25/1), Pakens Rock (33/1), Castle Valley (40/1), Longfordwood Lad (50/1), Lasso Dourado (50/1)

Verdict

The Mullins bumper wagon rolls on, with Patrick riding the winner here on Tuesday, scoring decisively despite being easy to back. GOLAZO is related to a winner in this sphere and looks as good as any on paper with no form under rules to count on. Abacadabras also has plenty going for him for a yard in excellent form (trainer/jockey took this race last year) while the booking of Jamie Codd suggests Bathiva may improve on point-to-point form from the spring. Behind The Curtain is another likely sort on paper.
  1. Golazo
  2. Abacadabras
  3. Bathiva
