Forecast

Ferny Hollow (8/13), Fakiera (7/2), Forged In Fire (9/1), Fierami (10/1), Fidji Emery (10/1), Alko Rouge (16/1), California Holiday (25/1), It Could Be You (28/1), Carrig Rock (50/1), Sadies Trix (50/1)

Verdict
The debut run from FAKIERA has worked out very well so far and looks worth following until the wheels fall off. All three horses who finished in front of the selection have won since and each has done so in a convincing manner. That is not to dismiss the rest lightly as the sales prices given to Fidji Emery (a stablemate of the selection), Forged In Fire, and Fierami were also eye-watering enough for them to merit close scrutiny for the prize money on offer in the finale.
  1. Fakiera
  2. Fidji Emery
  3. Forged In Fire
