Forecasts

Mr Mercurial (8/15), Black River (5/1), Racing Pulse (6/1), Cave Hunter (6/1), Shimla Dawn (10/1), Always Tipsy (12/1), Killer Crow (12/1), Streets Of Milan (14/1), Nine Altars (50/1), Pena Dorada (50/1), Wayupinthesky (50/1), Archies Bet (100/1), Afterclass (100/1)

Verdict

This looks to be a battle for minor honours behind MR MERCURIAL, who has shown already this year that he has the measure of several of these opponents and is the outstanding candidate. The rest of the race is tougher to assess, with Wayupinthesky, Racing Pulse and Streets Of Milan all pointers who could get competitive. Former dual winner Cave Hunter can't be written off just yet, but he failed to show much on his return from a long absence, Black River looks to have clear place claims, while Killer Crow could also go well.
  1. Mr Mercurial
  2. Black River
  3. Wayupinthesky
