Smoking Gun (9/4), Makka Pakka (7/2), Getaday (7/2), Dynamic Allen (8/1), Longtimesincejaspr (10/1), A Dos No Bueno (16/1), Golan Cloud (20/1), Watching Brief (33/1), Kiss Me Kayf (33/1), Dix De Der (33/1), Brazen Bay (50/1), Popcorn Sutton (50/1), Lesssaidthebetter (66/1)

Verdict
SMOKING GUN has been learning on the job in three runs to date, and takes a marked drop in class here, so is taken to score for his in-form yard. Makka Pakka and A Dos No Bueno stepped up on previous efforts last time, and have place claims with further improvement likely.
  1. Smoking Gun
  2. Makka Pakka
  3. A Dos No Bueno
