Forecast

Augustus Caesar (15/8), Triple Spear (3/1), Astrozone (3/1), Seize The Time (10/1), Requiems Dream (12/1), Ballyare (16/1), Rosa (16/1)

Verdict
Lucinda Russell has saddled only two turf Flat winners previously (Hamilton & Newcastle) so BALLYARE would be her first ever Flat winner on an artificial racing surface. He went mightily close on his handicap debut at Newcastle (6f) before failing to back up that effort over 7f. However, dropped back in trip on a more demanding surface he can be expected to be finishing strongly in a race which potentially won't take too much winning. Shorter priced alternatives include Augustus Caesar and the ultra-consistent (if a shade exposed) Astrozone.
  1. Ballyare
  2. Augustus Caesar
  3. Astrozone
