Forecast

Franklyn (7/4), Kafu (5/1), Red Sole Diva (7/1), Split Down South (7/1), Snow Ocean (12/1), Oiche Re Gealai (14/1), Candy Man (14/1), Asanda (16/1), Luminent (16/1), Airgead (16/1), Ben Alexander (16/1), Cosmic Jazz (20/1), Quare Lucky (20/1), Puddymore (28/1), Slainte (33/1), Bobby Cool (50/1)

Verdict
Although dropping to this relatively sharp 1m isn't ideal FRANKLYN is too well treated under his penalty to ignore and Chris Hayes is well capable of making the most of his well-handicapped mount's strengths to win this. Kafu is expected to come back to form soon now after his latest effort and reappearing Oiche Re Gealai is quite interesting for master trainer Jim Bolger.
  1. Franklyn
