Forecasts

Moon Over Germany (10/3), Mind's Eye (5/1), Lake Takapuna (5/1), Kildorrery (6/1), R'evelyn Pleasure (8/1), Dakota Moirette (11/1), Quamino (14/1), Tisamystery (14/1), Three Stars (14/1), Three Wise Men (16/1), Duke Of Navan (20/1), De Plotting Shed (20/1), Kylecrue (25/1), Tycoon Prince (33/1), Presenting Mahler (40/1)

Verdict

Plenty of these remain unexposed and it is a difficult finale for punters to solve. Quamino already looks better in this sphere than he was as a hurdler and can play a role but handicap debutants Mind's Eye, Kildorrery and R'evelyn Pleasure all command respect and must be noted. Dakota Moirette has already improved in his two handicaps and should be winning sooner rather than later but the vote is reserved for MOON OVER GERMANY. He has run well behind smart sorts in beginners' events and his opening handicap mark may well prove lenient following a C&D second last month (winner runs in preceding Grade 1).
  1. Moon Over Germany
  2. Dakota Moirette
  3. Quamino
