Verdana Blue (4/1), Mister Fisher (5/1), Nube Negra (13/2), Malaya (7/1), Anemoi (7/1), Leoncavallo (17/2), Pearl Of The West (10/1), Redicean (10/1), Brain Power (11/1), Dino Velvet (14/1), Equus Amadeus (16/1), Captain Moirette (20/1), Irish Roe (25/1), Caius Marcius (25/1), Get Out The Gate (50/1)

Verdict

The relatively unexposed mare PEARL OF THE WEST could well have been trained all term with this race in mind. She comes here relatively fresh and should be spot on after a good recent effort on the Flat. There are plenty of dangers in a hot race. Malaya could prove the toughest nut to crack and should go close, while Captain Moirette may run well at decent odds. Of the Henderson-trained trio, Mister Fisher may do best, although if Verdana Blue returns to form he should be right in the thick of the action
  1. Pearl Of The West
  2. Malaya
  3. Mister Fisher
