Betting

Forecast

Mutaraffa (1/5), Aljari (8/1), Basilisk (8/1), Stormbomber (10/1), Baalbek (14/1), Confab (14/1), Ecstasea (33/1), So Claire (50/1)

Verdict
MUTARAFFA was so impressive in his success that it would take enormous improvement from a rival or a below par run to see him beaten and for that reason he's very difficult to oppose. Should he fail to run to that level then Confab is the most likely to benefit after not getting the run of things on debut. Stormbomber also has more to offer while Aljari must be noted in the betting.
