Forecast

Cuban Hope (4/1), South Pacific (9/2), Third World (5/1), Elite Trooper Grey (6/1), Eminence (7/1), Blenheim Palace (11/1), King's Vow (14/1), Crimson King (14/1), Jupiter Road (14/1), Motashakel (16/1), Laura Bullion (20/1), Pepperoni Pete (20/1)

Verdict
Fitness is an unknown for so many of these but if he is ready to go ELITE TROOPER GREY could be very competitive in a race that may be worth following. Blenheim Palace is narrowly preferred of the O'Brien pair while Cuban Hope has fitness on his side but this is much tougher than his win a week ago.
  1. Elite Trooper Grey
  2. Blenheim Palace
  3. Cuban Hope
