Forecast

Omnivega (2/1), Paseo (10/3), Merry Vale (7/2), Mizuki (10/1), Dante's View (10/1), Latin Knight (12/1), Lexington Flair (33/1), Polar Cloud (50/1), Handsome Samson (50/1), Scarlett Sun (66/1), Scarlett O'halo (100/1), Royal Born (100/1)

Verdict
This can be quickly narrowed down to three who have the form in the book. After she was third behind the 108-rated Hamish back in June, Mizuki would have serious claims. Se has a small bit to prove after not being seen since that effort, despite still being respected given the form of her yard. Omnivega is another one for the shortlist after he produced another solid placed effort when third over 1m3f here back in September and he also represents in-form connections. The selection is MERRY VALE, whose trainer holds a 22% strike-rate at Kempton. She has ran to a good level on each of her three career starts & can improve for the application of blinkers & step up to 1m4f.
  1. Merry Vale
  2. Mizuki
  3. Omnivega
