Forecast

Queen Of Kalahari (7/2), Windforpower (9/2), Poppy In The Wind (5/1), Star Cracker (6/1), Encoded (9/1), Bahango (9/1), Funkadelic (12/1), Fuel Injection (14/1), Novabridge (20/1), Camanche Grey (33/1)

Verdict
None of these are at the top of their game at present so it is only on the basis of an eyecatching handicap mark that POPPY IN THE WIND gets the vote. Similar sentiments apply to Bahango and Windforpower, while others who may get involved include Novabridge and Star Cracker.
  1. Poppy In The Wind
  2. Bahango
  3. Windforpower
