Forecast

Chookie Dunedin (7/2), Real Estate (4/1), Siege Of Boston (7/1), Soar Above (7/1), Inaam (7/1), Plunger (7/1), Lucky Lodge (15/2), Critical Thinking (17/2), Harry George (17/2), Thaayer (9/1), Call Out Loud (14/1), Mister Dependable (33/1)

Verdict
An ultra-competitive handicap in which the waters are somewhat muddied by the presence of three John Butler-trained runners (Inaam, Soar Above and Plunger). Furthermore, it should be noted that Siege Of Boston (a former Butler inmate) sports the same racing silks as Inaam. The in-form Chookie Dunedin and the attractively weighted Critical Thinking (beat Lucky Lodge over C&D 12 days ago) have been done no favours whatsoever by the draw. Therefore, from a more favourable berth in stall three it's considered possible that the thriving REAL ESTATE can land the four-timer for Attwater and Havlin.
