Betting

Forecast

Mister Fogpatches (3/1), Royal Thief (7/2), Foxy Jacks (7/2), Gun Merchant (11/2), Walking On Glass (11/2), Fire Away (8/1), Turbo (25/1), Allannahs Gold (25/1)

Verdict
A very tight-knit event in which very marginal preference is for GUN MERCHANT, whose run behind Andy Dufresne two starts back reads well in this company. Walking On Glass has a solid chance and has been knocking on the door of late, while top weight Royal Thief is a definite player, especially if bouncing back from a rather flat effort last time. Foxy Jacks and Turbo cannot be ruled out of the equation either, nor can Mister Fogpatches.
  1. Gun Merchant
  2. Royal Thief
  3. Walking On Glass
