Forecast

Renardeau (6/5), Guroor (6/4), Continuum (10/1), Adams Park (10/1), Contingency Fee (12/1)

Verdict
The last three renewals of this race have seen winners returned at 33-1, 20-1 and 10-1 but in all likelihood it’s going to be a much shorter SP that gets returned this time with connections having found a good opening for GUROOR to complete her hat-trick. Progressing well of late she gets on well with Stefano Cherchi on board for her last two wins. Renardeau looks an obvious danger but he’s not the most consistent and faces a stiff task off this mark. Contingency Fee has two ways of running so it might be worth looking at Adams Park for the runner up slot with his shrewd yard appearing to close to finding the key to him and having a lenient mark to work with now.
  1. Guroor
  2. Adams Park
  3. Renardeau
