Betting

Forecast

The Kicking Queen (9/4), Gran Luna (7/2), Whiskey Lullaby (11/2), Didonato (8/1), Genial Hawkstone (10/1), Southfield Lily (10/1), Colours Of My Life (16/1), Cateline (22/1), Outlaw Jesse James (25/1), Flibinight (33/1), City Diva (66/1)

Verdict
GRAN LUNA represents a top stable who can boast a 31% strike-rate (8/26) in recent weeks and she is taken to make a winning debut in the concluding bumper. The selection can get the better of Whiskey Lullaby who showed ability when placed in a point-to-point in the autumn while the well-related Southfield Lily can finish third on debut.
  1. Gran Luna
  2. Whiskey Lullaby
  3. Southfield Lily
