Betting

Forecast

Merchant Of Venice (11/2), Candelisa (6/1), Medieval (9/1), Isomer (10/1), Poetic Force (10/1), Letsbe Avenue (12/1), First Link (12/1), Enigmatic (14/1), Juanito Chico (14/1), Key Player (16/1), Ambient (20/1), Kingston Kurrajong (20/1), Motajaasid (20/1), Blame Culture (20/1), Mandarin (20/1), Sea Fox (25/1), Sir Plato (25/1), Biotic (50/1), Mountain Rescue (50/1), Pour La Victoire (66/1)

Verdict

Although yet to race on turf the improving MERCHANT OF VENICE gets the nod with his latest effort suggesting a strong run, stiff 1m could be a perfect test a this stage. Everything appears in place for Motajaasid to run a big race after getting bogged down on soft surfaces last autumn and he appeals plenty too. Juanito Chico was better than ever seemingly on return so looks another with obvious chances.
  1. Merchant Of Venice
  2. Motajaasid
  3. Juanito Chico
