Forecast

Chequered View (11/4), Field Exhibition (4/1), Belle Empress (5/1), Dinos Benefit (11/2), Peggies Venture (8/1), Really Super (10/1), Stephanie Sunshine (12/1), Kentford Heiress (25/1)

Verdict
It’s hard to ignore the 17L victory of Chequered View last time although the quality of the opposition has to be questioned and there’s also the possibility that the headgear won’t work as well again; she in the mix but ought to find this tougher. Really Super wasn’t right when running a poor race on her chasing debut and deserves another chance with Belle Empress now given an opportunity that looks easier than the tests she’s been given so far. The market may give some clues as to her being ready for this contest. FIELD EXHIBITION ran a far better race than it looks on paper last time at Exeter and connections try for some quick compensation which they deserve.
  1. Field Exhibition
  2. Belle Empress
  3. Chequered View
