Forecasts

Diamond Turf (6/4), Captain Cj (3/1), Denwork (3/1), Largy Glory (5/1), Cap York (7/1), Atlantic Shore (10/1), Mad Carew (16/1), The Dabbler (20/1), Whydah (25/1), The Sneaky Punter (33/1), Incredible Black (100/1)

Verdict

Not that strong a contest and DENWORK has the opportunity to get off the mark over hurdles. Diamond Turf is surely capable of better than he showed at Down Royal and looks then chief threat with Largy Glory looks best of the rest.
  1. Denwork
