Forecast

Mr Mooj (8/11), Kokura (7/2), Maziyda (7/1), Yulong Transcend (12/1), Harbanaker (18/1), Wonder Elzaam (20/1), Ubume (20/1), Pepper Sprout (20/1), Ranger Bob (20/1), Just Let Go (25/1), Plugged In (25/1), Rudrama Devi (28/1), Hisnameis Mrdevitt (33/1), Signs Of Thunder (66/1), Abby's Magic (100/1), Philly's Hope (100/1), Baby Bear (100/1)

Verdict
The Joseph O'Brien-trained MR MOOJ can build on a decent debut effort over C&D earlier this month. The son of Camelot ran a creditable fifth of 14 beaten 5L running short of room in the closing stages and can get off the mark on his second start at the expense of Yulong Transcend who is likely to improve on his polytrack debut here earlier this month over 6f, as he steps up in trip. The Mick Halford-trained, Aga Khan-owned Maziyda and Ubume for Joseph O'Brien appear to be the most attractive newcomers and should not be underestimated.
  1. Mr Mooj
  2. Yulong Transcend
  3. Maziyda
