Forecasts

Master Matt (7/2), Silverkode (13/2), Twenty Minutes (7/1), Medicine Jack (8/1), Aurora Eclipse (9/1), Make A Challenge (10/1), Downforce (10/1), The Broghie Man (12/1), Blairmayne (12/1), Stanhope (14/1), Zodiacus (14/1), Rattling Jewel (16/1), Blyton (20/1), Never Back Down (25/1), Andre Amar (33/1)

Verdict

This looks winnable, despite the numbers, and top weight DOWNFORCE can make his class count. The more rain that falls for him the better, and he'll appreciate this drop in class too. A record of a win and two places from seven starts here reads well. Master Matt brings some good form to the table and won't mind conditions, and Make A Challenge is similarly good heart. They can both play a part. Aurura Eclipse and Zodiacus are potential improvers.
  1. Downforce
  2. Master Matt
  3. Make A Challenge
