Verdict
Wide-open looking contest where most of the pace appears to be from stall 12 and higher. The initial pace of Time Of Time may give a handy pull into the race for stalking and closing types the likes of Aurora Eclipse in a first-time visor, the solid and consistent, Aspen Belle and the Denis Hogan-trained, MAKE A CHALLENGE a winner at this track over 6f last month. Cityman, Verhoyen, Angelic Light, British raider Only Spoofing and Aleef with all be around the pace and should not be underestimated.
  1. Make A Challenge
  2. Aurora Eclipse
