Betting

Forecast

Desert Icon (15/8), Good Birthday (11/4), Dark Vision (7/2), Victory Command (9/2), Three Comets (9/1), Arctic Fox (25/1)

Verdict
Little to choose between the top quartet, but GOOD BIRTHDAY has shown himself to be well suited by easy ground, and that may give him the edge if the track rides as expected. Desert Icon's latest effort is working out well, and he's narrowly preferred to Dark Vision for the minor medals.
  1. Good Birthday
  2. Desert Icon
  3. Dark Vision
