Betting

Forecast

Station Master (5/2), Battle Of Shiloh (5/1), Classic Ben (6/1), Militarian (8/1), Another Frontier (8/1), Cabaret Queen (11/1), Treackle Tart (12/1), Valadom (12/1), Minella On Line (14/1), Terry The Fish (20/1)

Verdict
Holes can be picked in most of these for one reason or another, but STATION MASTER's form and profile looks solid enough and he can get off the mark over fences at the main expense of Battle Of Shiloh. Top-weight Miiitarian is not out of it, while cases can also be made for Classic Ben, Valadom and Another Frontier.
  1. Station Master
  2. Battle Of Shiloh
  3. Classic Ben
