Forecast

Choungaya (4/1), Mormon (6/1), Cap York (13/2), Plan Of Attack (13/2), Moratorium (7/1), Oscar Knight (9/1), Its All Guesswork (10/1), Brosna George (10/1), Tin Soldier (14/1), A Toi Phil (25/1), Drumconnor Lad (25/1), Three Wise Men (25/1), Dorans River (50/1)

Verdict
A tough one to call but MORMON has bags of potential and could possible be the brightest hope from the Gigginstown Stud's quintet of intended runners. The selection is open to plenty of improvement and has shaped as if 3m should be within his compass. Moratorium can also figure strongly if he adapts to racing over this distance and has to merit consideration for a place at least., while Brosna George is in the form of his life and is a potential threat. Oscar Knight is a consistent yardstick and would be dangerous to underestimate, while Cap York is open to further progress and he completes the shortlist.
  1. Mormon
  2. Moratorium
  3. Brosna George
