Verdict

KINGSTON and Kublai bring the best recent form into this and look the most viable options in a race that will take little winning. The latter sauntered home last week by 18L to end a three year drought. He is undoubtedly well-treated judged on historical form and on his revised mark which kicks in after this. However, the selection probably achieved more in beating Rocket Ronnie, who has upheld the form since. Kingston has also gone well here since in a higher grade contest and merits the pick as a result.
  1. Kingston
  2. Kublai
  3. Celtic Monarch
