Forecast

Potala Palace (11/4), Raven's Cry (7/2), Mensen Ernst (5/1), The Truant (7/1), Borelli (17/2), Natural Power (10/1), Jm Barrie (14/1), Helvic Dream (16/1), Bigz Belief (16/1), At War (20/1), Spiritual Son (25/1), Troop Commander (33/1), Gunmetal Jack (50/1), Majeski Man (50/1)

Verdict

The Truant and Borelli didn't really improve first to second start but both have put in two solid efforts that would entitle them to be under serious consideration. The debut of Natural Power isn't far off that level while UK raider Mensen Ernst is of obvious interest for his powerful stable. The form of the second start of Potala Palace was backed up by a fast time and is a serious danger, however preference is for RAVEN'S CRY who was green on debut in a very strong looking contest and their was a lot to like about the way she pulled clear of the third.
  1. Raven's Cry
  2. Potala Palace
  3. Mensen Ernst
