Betting

Forecast

Just Cause (4/7), Asockastar (9/4), Downbythestrand (12/1), Chase Me (25/1)

Verdict
Two of the quartet stand out here with the fitness of JUST CAUSE tipping the scales in his favour having run as recently as December with his main rival Asockastar being absent from the course since last June. The selection is a prolific scorer between the flags and he deserves to win an event such as this. Chase Me looks to have a tough task and Downbythestrand is preferred for the minor placing despite his lengthy absence.
  1. Just Cause
  2. Asockastar
  3. Downbythestrand
