Forecast

Persian Lion (9/2), Shakespear'sgalley (11/2), Rockabill (6/1), Dalton Highway (13/2), Bongiorno (7/1), Chess Grand Master (8/1), Tirmizi (11/1), Kerosin (12/1), Venezia (12/1), White Desert (12/1), Hurricane Sky (33/1), Marine One (33/1), Park Row (33/1)

Verdict
PERSIAN LION gives the impression we still haven't seen the best of him and he should come on for his recent seaosnal reappearance when a respectable second. It's a similar story for Rockabill who is the first string for Joseph O'Brien. Tirmizi still looks on a workable handicap mark and can go well again.
  1. Persian Lion
  2. Rockabill
  3. Tirmizi
