Turgenev (7/2), Velorum (6/1), Migration (7/1), King Ademar (15/2), Davydenko (10/1), Motafaawit (12/1), Awe (14/1), Beat Le Bon (14/1), Hero Hero (16/1), Beatboxer (16/1), Barristan The Bold (16/1), Dark Vision (18/1), Dunkirk Harbour (20/1), Aweedram (20/1), Tulfarris (25/1), Masaru (25/1), Biometric (28/1), Pogo (33/1), Dubai Legacy (33/1), Athmad (33/1), Glorious Lover (40/1), Fanaar (50/1), Numerian (50/1), Victory Command (50/1), Dark Jedi (50/1), Sameem (50/1), Finoah (66/1), Certain Lad (66/1), Dunkerron (66/1), Hot Team (66/1), Eclipse Storm (66/1), Mordred (100/1)

Verdict
KING ADEMAR is entirely unexposed and providing he doesn't find this sort of race a culture shock, he should go well given that the form of his last two placed efforts has been franked in good style. Pogo goes on soft ground and is worth considering back down in class. Conditions could be an issue for Velorum who is yet to race on this sort of ground but he's an obvious player on handicap debut if he handles the test.
  1. King Ademar
  2. Pogo
  3. Velorum
