Forecast

Anna Bunina (11/10), Flying Dragon (3/1), Hector's Here (7/1), Ollivander (7/1), Hunterwali (15/2), Vivacious Spirit (16/1), Al Messila (N/A)

Verdict
HUNTERWALI and Hector's Here are both looking to follow up on their most recent success here and they both have a great chance to do that but the preference is with the former who was so impressive last time at this course. He is stepping up in trip slightly and that will only help his chances as he was full of running in the closing stages of his last start. Anna Bunina has been running consistently well and should be in the mix again.
  1. Hunterwali
  2. Hector's Here
  3. Anna Bunina
