Forecasts

George Dryden (7/2), Union Rose (4/1), Storm Melody (5/1), La Fortuna (6/1), Little Palaver (6/1), Naadirr (13/2), King Crimson (8/1), Blaine (8/1), Doc Sportello (10/1), Pea Shooter (20/1)

Verdict

STORM MELODY was in too deep here last time but back down in grade in a veterans contest, there is every chance of bouncing back to the form he showed to win twice here this summer. If breaking better than last time George Dryden will be a threat while La Fortuna completes the short list.
  1. Storm Melody
  2. George Dryden
  3. La Fortuna
