Forecast

All The Answers (11/4), Lake Takapuna (7/2), Rocky Court (5/1), Or Jaune De Somoza (7/1), Reach Up (9/1), Lucky Pat (10/1), Powersbomb (10/1), Mega Mindy (10/1), Three Wise Men (11/1), Mighty Stowaway (12/1), Rock The World (16/1), Draycott Place (16/1), Carrig Cathal (16/1), Nearly Nama'd (25/1), Presenting Mahler (25/1)

Verdict
For a stable in good form and with a strong record in the race OR JAUNE DE SOMOZA comes here off the back of his best form to date and on an attractive opening handicap mark. Lake Takapuna is also well handicapped and has more to offer for his new stable while Mega Mindy is so consistent it's very hard to leave her out of the equation.
  1. Or Jaune De Somoza
  2. Lake Takapuna
  3. Mega Mindy
