Forecast

Finding Nero (5/1), Cerberus (11/2), Major Reward (6/1), Queen Amidala (6/1), Highway To Heaven (7/1), Cuban Surfer (10/1), Dare To Flare (12/1), Star Quality (14/1), Muzbid (16/1), Aztec Eagle (16/1), No Say Ever (20/1), Basrah Breeze (20/1), Papal Parade (33/1), Merited (33/1)

Verdict

HIGHWAY TO HEAVEN made a mockery of her handicap mark last time over this C&D scoring by 5L. She has been raised 10lb for that opening success but it shouldn't be enough to put you off her following up as she clearly enjoys it around here. Major Reward came really close to his opening turf victory last time where he only went down off a neck so off the same mark as that near miss, expect him to be there at the business end of the race, while Dare To Flare has really been enjoying it on turf this season and should be in the placings here.
  1. Highway To Heaven
  2. Major Reward
  3. Dare To Flare
