Forecast

Camachita (7/2), Kingslayer (5/1), Moondrop (5/1), Danielles Diamond (6/1), Last Opportunity (7/1), Silver Spear (10/1), Ya Ya Baby (10/1), Gold Factory (11/1), Sasta (16/1), Half Nutz (20/1), Lady Zell (25/1), Sir Dotti (33/1), Adamaris (50/1), Hay Kimbello (66/1)

Verdict

MOONDROP is one of the more experienced horses heading into this contest and took the eye with a rapid finish at Fairyhouse. The filly would've finished closer if she wasn't short of room at a crucial stage and had to switch right. If she gets a smooth run she could prove hard to beat for a trainer who is coming into form. Camachita kept on well despite missing the break here last time and could be dangerous given her trainer is now off the cold-list, while Kingslayer has shaped as if there is more natural progression to come, albeit probably over further.
