Forecast

Fix Sun (1/6), Fraternel (8/1), Book Of Invasions (11/1), Leroy Brown (20/1)

Verdict

On everything we've seen so far it is hard to oppose the doubly penalised FIX SUN who looks a decent prospect. Despite his penalties he should have too many guns for the opposition. If the selection fails to run his race Fraternel may prove pick of the remainder and he should be sharper now for a debut spin. Both Book Of Invasions and Leroy Brown appeared to struggle on easy ground last time so there has to be a doubt about them on the forecast going, although the drop in trip may aid the latter.
  1. Fix Sun
  2. Fraternel
  3. Leroy Brown
