Forecasts

Unexpected Depth (4/5), Dark Decade (7/2), Valley Breeze (6/1), Bunninadden (12/1), Hewick (16/1), Rock On Aussie (20/1), Askthebossman (25/1), Little Saint (33/1), Tico Times (50/1), Killdevil George (50/1), Baronial Hall (66/1)

Verdict

Hard to make a coherent case for most of this field with a slight preference given to BUNNINADDEN who is one of the few to show some degree of ability on a racecourse exemplified by his two fourth place finishes in his latest two runs. He would not have to improve too much to land this contest. Askthebossman would have finished closer at this track over 3m last time out if he had jumped better. If this is sorted out then he has ability and certainly capable of winning this type of race. While hardly being a racehorse to place too much faith in at present Unexpected Depth did run with a little more promise last time out and would not have to improve too much again to earn some prize money.
  1. Bunninadden
  2. Askthebossman
  3. Unexpected Depth
