Forecast

Champers Elysees (15/8), Flaming Moon (7/2), Mount Fuji (4/1), My Friend Stan (9/2), For The Trees (11/2), Not Now Zeb (8/1), Koolasice (8/1), In From The Cold (12/1), Latin Five (16/1)

Verdict
A typically difficult nursery but the one who could have most improvement under his belt is FLAMING MOON having only raced twice. He has shown very smart form in the two starts. Also high on the wish list is Champers Elysees who is the preferred of the Murtagh trained duo, he won well last time out. A significant class drop and first-time blinkers could see Mount Fuji spring back to life.
  1. Flaming Moon
  2. Champers Elysees
  3. Mount Fuji
