Betting

Forecast

Native Fighter (7/2), Houlton (7/2), Mugatoo (4/1), Seinesational (9/2), Pirate King (7/1), Navajo Star (8/1), Ice Galley (20/1), Blue Rambler (25/1), Tapis Libre (28/1)

Verdict
MUGATOO goes handicapping over a trip which should see improvement and off a mark which looks more than fair on balance, so he gets the nod over Navajo Star, who can be forgiven a modest effort on Fibresand last time. Pirate King won his maiden easily here last season, and has claims if excuses are made for a couple of subsequent defeats.
  1. Mugatoo
  2. Navajo Star
  3. Pirate King
