Forecast

Ghost Serge (6/4), Ezzrah (11/4), Dream Magic (3/1), Adams Park (9/1), Star Talent (20/1), First Flight (20/1), Totally Committed (66/1)

Verdict
Mick Appleby's runners are always worth a second look at this level and the booking of Ben Curtis for Adams Park signals an intention to give the winning hurdler every chance of a maiden Flat success. He has looked one paced in recent races and preference is for DREAM MAGIC who has looked comfortable in similar company lately and who is weighted to gain another victory at this venue. Ghost Serge cannot be relied upon to follow up Sunday's success, whereas First Flight has a reliable record in this class but needs to rebound from a poor debut for this yard.
  1. Dream Magic
  2. Adams Park
  3. Ghost Serge
