Forecasts

Farnese (7/2), Caesar's Comet (9/2), Hidden Spark (5/1), Cautious Approach (7/1), Suntory Times (7/1), Asanda (7/1), Eyeoweyou (10/1), Very Smart (11/1), Anfaass (12/1), Waitaki (14/1), Bionic Tonic (16/1), Rain Or Shine (16/1), Masalai (25/1), Fashaar (33/1), No Trouble (33/1), Sally Gap (33/1), Kody Ridge (33/1)

Verdict

Farnese got the mark at the fourth time of asking when landing a handicap over C&D at odds of 33/1 last month off a 6lb lower mark and is sure to go well on the surface once again. CAUTIOUS APPROACH has a solid record at this track and over C&D winning off a 4lb higher mark in March as well as hitting the frame over the combination on two further occasions including behind Farnese last month. The daughter of Dawn Approach can turn the tables here. The Di Love-trained Hidden Spark and the returning Suntory Times are no forlorn hopes ahead of a winter campaign here.
  1. Cautious Approach
